At 9:20 a.m. on September 6, 2018, an employee and coworker were tossing chunks of broken concrete into the bucket of a "Bobcat" from a demolished sidewalk. At some point, a chunk of concrete tossed by the employee began to bounce out of the bucket. As it did, the employee reached back to stop the concrete from bouncing out as the coworker tossed another chunk of concrete (approximately three and a half inches in diameter and weighing approximately fifteen pounds) into the bucket. The chunk tossed by the coworker struck the employee's right index finger and caused crushing injuries. The employee was hospitalized for surgery to repair the fracture to his finger.
