At approximately 6:30 a.m. on October 28, 2010, an employee was working at an industrial machine shop in Huntington Beach, CA, operating a metal-bending machine in the shop area. He was an employee of the corporation. The rollers of the metal-bending machine were exposed and were not effectively guarded. The worker's right hand was crushed, and the second, third, and fourth fingers on his right hand were nearly amputated when they were caught by the rollers. He was transported by the shop foreman to the hospital for emergency surgery. The opening to the rollers was measured later by the Division to be approximately seven inches wide by 12 inches long.
