At 11:30 p.m. on September 3, 2020, an employee attempted to reposition the grin der to continue working. As the employee moved the grinder, the power cord becam e entangled around a wheel, which pulled the cord tight against the machine and cut the power cord. The exposed live wires made contact with the frame of the gr inder and energized it with 3-phase/460 volts. At some point, the employee's leg s made contact with the energized frame and the employee was killed by electrocu tion.
