As Jennifer reaches into the conveyor belt, her hand gets caught between the gears, resulting in a severe crush injury. Her co-workers quickly rush to her aid, stopping the machine and calling for emergency medical assistance. Jennifer is taken to the hospital where she undergoes emergency surgery to repair the damage to her hand.
