At approximately 3:00 p.m. on May 09, 2013, Employee #1 was changing out brake shoes on an (Acme Model Number 28) motorized carriage. The motor on the carriage was running at that time. A coworker was working on the radio control system for the Acme carriage at the same time and switched the control button to the off position. This caused the skyline clamp that the employee was working on to close. Employee #1's right hand was caught between the two brake shoes and three of his fingers were crushed. The employee was taken to an area hospital, where his fingers were amputated. Employee #1 was later released.
