At approximately 1:15 a.m. on May 11, 2010, Employee #1 was operating an overhead gantry hoist crane attached to a wooden lifting beam, located at Battery charging station of the manufacturing facility. The employee was in the process of lifting a battery out of a fork lift. For this purpose, Employee #1 brought the lifting beam of the crane down. The beam's one end was broken and a securing spring was missing from the same end. Employee #1 had his right hand on the right hook to prevent the left hook from slipping out of the battery eyelet. As Employee #1 attempted to lift the battery, his right index finger tip inadvertently got caught between the hook and battery eyelet resulting in partial amputation injury.
