At 11:30 p.m. on September 3, 2020, an employee attempted to reposition the grinder to continue working. As the employee moved the grinder, the power cord became entangled around a wheel, which pulled the cord tight against the machine and cut the power cord. The exposed live wires made contact with the frame of the grinder and energized it with 3-phase/460 volts. At some point, the employee's legs made contact with the energized frame and the employee was killed by electrocution.
