On March 1, 2003, Employee #1, a cement truck driver, arrived at a home under construction and starting pouring concrete. The contractor asked Employee #1 to move the truck to another location, which he did. Employee #1 began to place the chute but lost his footing and lost control of the chute. When Employee #1 looked down, he saw part of the glove covering his right hand between the two chutes. Employee #1 pulled his hand out of the chute severely damaging the index finger. Employee #1 suffered a fracture to his right middle finger and the severity of the damage to the index finger required doctors to surgically remove the tip. Employee #1 was released from the hospital later that day.
