When Employee #1 tried to pull out the cardboard, the machine operated, crushing his right hand. An interview with Employee #1 at the hospital was attempted, but not granted. The die cutter was inspected on April 17, 1991, and found to be in compliance with T8CCR 4436. There was no evidence of an accident-related violation.
