On August 7, 2007 Employee #1 of Adams Products was working a block machine when the packs started coming out empty. Employee #2, the cube operator, told Employee #1 to open up the padlocked gate, but not to lock out or tag out the block machine. Employee #2 realized the lock was not the problem, but instead, the machine was just out of mud so he restarted the machine. Employee #2 did not realize Employee #1 was in the way, so Employee #2 was crushed between two racks.
