On July 23, 2009, Employee #1 was crouched underneath a 3,000 lb. bag of silica sand which was suspended by a backhoe with a forklift attachment. He was untying a spout to pour the sand into a recently-drilled water well. The backhoe operator inadvertently operated a lever while exiting the backhoe. The suspended bag then lowered onto Employee #1, pinning his upper body between the bag and a metal chute. He was hospitalized for unspecified fractures.
