On January 9, 2006, Employee #1 was a temporary employee of Eureka International Trading Co., which provided workers to the Kelley Brothers, Inc., a logging company in Veneta, OR. A log loader was moving a guyline stub from one area of a landing to another. The boom of the loader was lowered to get under the skyline with the guyline stub in the grapples. As the loader operator rotated the boom, the processor operator saw Employee #1 and a coworker on the ground in the path of the swinging boom and guyline stub. He yelled over the Citizens' Band radio for the loader operator to stop swinging the boom. The loader operator attempted to stop the boom, but the end of the guyline swung around Employee #1's neck and struck him in the face. Employee #1 sustained multiple fractured bones in his face. He was hospitalized.
