Employee #1 jumped from the loader, approximately 15 to 20 ft. As he landed, the loader went narrowly over him and an object came down toward him after the loader and struck him in the face. He was transported to a hospital by a coworker, where he was hospitalized and underwent surgery to fix fractured bones in his face.
