Employee #1 was using a mobile truck crane to pull bent fence posts from the ground. A chain was wrapped around the posts and then attached to the crane. The chain had already broken twice and in the next attempt, the chain slipped off the post. This caused the crane boom to jerk and Employee #1 fell against the controls, triggering the boom to release. The boom came down and trapped Employee #1's arm between the crane and the truck bed.
