The employee dropped a hose. The employee's arm was caught between the hydraulic cylinder that lifts the cutting head of the band saw and the vice. As the employee's right hand was between the hydraulic cylinder and the vice, the vice moved forward and crushed the employee's hand between the edge of the vice and the hydraulic cylinder. The employee was transported by helicopter to the local hospital for treatment.
