At approximately 3:25 p.m. on July 14, 2004, an employee was punching holes in metal stock to assemble cattle head gates. He was using a five-thousand pound hydraulic press. While setting up the press, it appears that he bottomed out the cylinder and the pressure caused the fitting welds to fail. A fitting flew off of the press, broke off the hose and struck the employee at his collar bone and then traveled through his body. He was found deceased by his employer.
