At about 8:00 a.m. on April 19, 1994, Employee #1 was fueling a King airplane. He used a 6 foot stepladder, climbed to the 3rd or 4th step, and fueled the plane. He then came down the ladder. As he stepped on the pavement and started to turn away from the ladder, he twisted his right foot. This caused him to fall away from the wing being fueled and toward the stationary propeller. His face hit the sharp side of the propeller, causing a cut between his upper lip and nose. Sutures were needed to close the cut. No safety violation was found.
