At approximately 2:40 p.m. on August 24, 2012, Employee #1 was positioning a 150 pound manhole cover on a manhole. A coworker assisted him in the effort. Both employees were not using proper tools for the removal and installation of the manhole cover. Employee #1 was holding the cover by its edge, as it was placed on the hole, but the coworker dropped the cover. Employee #1's left distal middle fingertip was caught between the cover and the hole and was amputated. He was transported to a medical center, where he underwent treatment and was then released the same day.
