Employee #1 stepped up on the side beam of the waste conveyor to release the jam when he felt a tug on his pant leg, then his leg was jerked into the waste conveyor belt and around the tail spool. Both bones in his lower leg were fractured when his leg caught between the conveyor belt and tail spool. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
