At about 6:00 p.m. on October 10, 2004, Employee #1 was working with a manually powered and hydraulically operated press. He was trying to straighten a heavy dent in a piece of steel plate, which was removed from the corner of a fender of a luggage dolly. The piece of plate was supported on two narrow steel blocks. As Employee #1 continued to apply pressure by means of the hydraulic system, one of the blocks suddenly tipped over, and moved sideways rapidly. Employee #1's finger was trapped against the frame of the machine and severely cut. Employee #1 required hospitalization.
