He reached into an opening in the skirt guarding and tried to remove the paper, but his hand got caught in the pinch point between the return side of the conveyor belt and the roller. Employee #1's left arm was broken just above the left wrist. Trying to take a short cut, he had not shut down the conveyor before cleaning a possible jam.
