|At approximately 10:30 p.m. on August 13, 2013, Employee #1 placed a Gamco Picker (Model Number D-16, Serial Number 37) machine into the automatic operation mode. He was looking at the side of the Picker and observing the inner rotating picking discs to ensure the picker components were operating correctly when he lost his balance. His right hand slipped off the top of the Picker and went inside the machine. The hand was caught in between the rotating picking disc, causing a severe avulsion to his right middle finger. Emergency medical personnel were summoned. They arrived and transported him by ambulance to a medical center, where he was evaluated and treated for his injuries. He was admitted to the medical center as an inpatient and underwent surgical procedures and skin grafts, after which he was hospitalized for five days.|
