On August 1, 2005, a logging crew was yarding previously-felled logs using a live skyline with a mechanical carriage. Employee #1, a choker setter, had just finished hooking a choker on a log and started to walk away from the rigging. Upon his signal, the yarder operator started to move the rigging. As the log was raised, a branch broke off, fell, and struck Employee #1's back. He was hospitalized for unspecified fractures.
