At 1:45 p.m. on September 27, 2018, an employee and two coworkers were standing on a concrete form while pouring concrete into concrete forms with a pressurized hose. The coworker #1 was holding the nozzle of the concrete hose and the employee was holding the middle of the hose while coworker #2 was using a hand tool to push the concrete into place. At some point, the hose became clogged and when the clog cleared, the hose whipped and the employee dropped the hose. The coworker #1 lost control of the hose and a spray of concrete hit the employee in the chest and knocked him off the form. The employee lost his balance and fell eight feet and was hospitalized with multiple fractured ribs.
