At about 9:30 a.m. on October 5, 1991, Employee #1, a farm worker, entered a grape harvester at the end of a row to remove vines and grapes while the engine was still running. He accidentally hit the lever that brings the shaker bars together, trapping and shaking him. Because the pressure on the shaker bars is set so as not to crush the vines or grapes, Employee #1 escaped serious injury. He was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital Emergency Room, then released.
