At 12:01 p.m. on May 2, 2018, a three man brush crew was setting chokers under a n Acme Slack Puller carriage. The carriage was locked on the skyline above the next turn. The skid-line, with three chokers, had been dropped, and the skid-li ne clamped at the carriage. The choker setter choked a fir and cleared out. The employee said the hook tender choked a fir but was still at the turn. The riggin g slinger was still working his choker at the turn when the yarder operator went ahead on the turn. As the skid-line came tight, it whipped the skyline, causing the turn of logs to whip and strike the hook tender and rigging slinger. Both e mployees sustained serious injuries and were transported by medical transport to medical facilities for treatment and over night admission.
