Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200356814Event: 02/12/2008Employee Injures Back In Explosion
On February 7, 2008, employees of a metal scrap yard received and purchased aluminum tubes and canisters from an unknown seller. The intake manager did not recognize the weathered aluminum parts as military ordinance. The employees sorted the parts and began the baling process of aluminum scrap that included the live anti-tank ordinance. On February 8, 2008, while making the fourth of five planned bales containing the explosives, one of the charges exploded, setting off another charge seconds later. Employee #1, the baler operator, was thrown from the elevated control station and suffered a back strain and temporary hearing loss. He was hospitalized for treatment.
