At approximately 2:30 p.m. on October 20, 2006, Employee #1, a pumping contractor, was cleaning out the pumping equipment after completing a pour. The hose became blocked with concrete and was thrown to the ground and shaken by Employee #1 while the concrete pumper was energized. This caused pressure to build up and the concrete blockage to break loose from the hose. The hose broke free from his hands and recoiled back, hitting his ribs. He sustained multiple rib fractures on both sides of his body and was hospitalized.
