On September 24, 2013, Employee #1, a crew-leader, for a vineyard and winery operation, was performing his usual work when he inadvertently placed his hands too close to the end of a log being split. The employee's gloved left pinky was caught between the log and the hydraulic powered splitter ram, point of operation, amputating his finger-tip. Employee #1 was transported by a coworker to Ukiah Valley Medical Center, where doctors successfully reattached his finger-tip. The employee was later released.
