At approximately 6:30 p.m. on August 9, 2010, Employee #1 was attempting to remove a bolt that was jammed from a fit ring on a tower. Employee #1 grabbed a washer to bring it back to the bolt's head to determine where the ring was stuck on the tower. The ring (load) shifted and caught Employee #1's right index finger between the washer and ring. Employee #1 was apparently taken to a medical facility in Newton, Iowa and then transferred to a medical facility in Des Moines, IA to see a specialty surgeon. Because of the injury, Employee #1's right index finger was amputated to the second joint. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
