At 7:30 a.m. on December 17, 2014, Employee #1 was removing a die cavity insert from a 2,000 pound large die block. In order to remove the cavity, elongated bol ts were placed in the large die. These bolts were hammered from the front, forci ng the cavity to exit the rear of the die, and to slide onto the jack stand.

The employee failed to notice that the elongated bolts from the l arge die were still attached to both the cavity and the larger die. As Employee #1 began to hoist the cavity, the bolts broke and caused the large die to fall o nto the employee's foot, crushing his left foot and toes. The employee sustaine d fractures and lacerations to his foot and toes. Employee #1 succumbed to the i njuries 30 days later, as the result of a blood clot sustained from the foot inj ury.
