On September 29, 2009, Employee #1, a laborer, had been working for one hour for a construction company doing a private home remodeling project.

The saw kicked back and sliced through Employee #1's left wrist, resulting in tendon damage that required surgery and a three-day hospitalization. The Huntington Beach Fire Department notified the Division about the serious injury.
