On May 30, 2013, an employee was preparing to spray a cement mixture through a high pressure hose onto the wall of a railroad tunnel. The hose plugged up for a brief few seconds as soon as the spraying started. The employee gave the signal to stop the pump by waving one of his hands. It is believed that the plug let loose while he was only holding it with one hand and the metal nozzle flew back and struck the employee in the upper chest and face thus killing him.
