The crew was in the process of flushing and cleaning a recently installed 8-in. water main. Employee #1 opened a 2-in. saddle valve assembly on one end of the pipe while his coworker went to the other end of the pipe and opened a blow-off valve to assist with the water flow through the pipe. The coworker attempted to contact Employee #1 to see if everything was going okay (they were out of sight of each other) and received no answer. The coworker returned to the other end of the pipe to find Employee #1 on the ground, unconscious and the saddle valve assembly broken off the water main. Employee #1 sustained multiple facial lacerations, fractures and a subdural hematoma in the accident. Employee #1 was hospitalized.
