At approximately 11:30 a.m. on April 15, 2010, Employee #1 was driving a Hyster stand-up forklift (Model Number E35HSD, Serial Number A219N02768D) to park in Slot 4 of the charging area. Employee #1 was approximately 15 to 20 feet from Slot 4, when a coworker who had just parked his forklift, ran and pulled the battery plug off Employee #1's forklift. When the battery plug was removed, Employee #1's forklift was electrically deenergized, but continued to move. Employee #1 panicked and tried to stop the movement of the forklift, but it continued moving. Employee #1's foot was out of the fork lift and got crushed between the angle-iron barrier of Slot 4 and the back frame of the forklift. Employee #1 sustained amputation of his left toes. The employer was a kitchen and bath products distribution center.
