After using a Hitachi NR 83AA2 pneumatic framing nailer to nail some wood pieces and line up a wall, he was walking on top of the wall with the nailer clipped onto the nail bags and the air hose still connected to the nailer. The nail gun's trigger was inadvertently activated, and a nail shot out and lodged in Employee #1's knee. Employee #1 received treatment for the puncture wound but was not hospitalized.
