Employee #1 was working beneath a piece of farm equipment that was being held up by a three-point mounted on a John Deere Tractor, serial #2855N, and supported by two jack stands. He had crawled beneath it to change the hammers on the flail when the piece of equipment shifted and pinned him. A coworker attempted to lift the flail with the three-point, but the third point, which was a chain, broke a link. This caused the flail to fall on Employee #1. He was killed.
