At 9:00 p.m. on December 3, 2010, Employee #1 and Employee #2 were responding to a maintenance call for the Auto Rolling 2 machine; the pry bar was stuck on the machine. Employee #2 was performing trouble shooting activities outside of the machine; Employee #1 was underneath the machine, while it was being cycled by Employee #3. Employee #1 got caught between the gripper bar and the guard plate. Employee #2 and several other employees heard a gasp, and Employee #3 stopped the machine and called 911 immediately. Several employees had to remove the guard plate so that the paramedics could remove Employee #1 from underneath the machine. The paramedics transported Employee #1 by airlift to Scripps La Jolla Hospital in San Diego, CA for treatment and surgery for his unspecified injuries.
