On September 30, 2003, Employee #1 was operating a Case skid steer loader on which the loader bucket had been removed and replaced with forks. He was using the skid steer loader to raise a hopper containing hot ash. As the load was raised, Employee #1, seated in the cab, apparently pushed the wrong joystick control, causing the load to dump backward onto him. He was severely burned by the ash, and he died on October 12, 2003.
