Employee #1 was opening one valve of a six pack of compressed gas cylinders. The six pack was connected to a manifold and each compressed gas cylinder had its own line going into the manifold.

All three oxygen lines were whipping in the air and one struck him in the face. He also suffered third-degree burns on the inside of his arm. The cause of the burn was undetermined. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
