    Equipment supplier fined in accident that left employee blinded - AP, Fort Worth Star Telegram
    A welder, surgeons, firefighters and paramedics spent hours to detach a 10-inch hook from a backhoe and then remove it from Wayne Gail Creek's head.

    The company failed to follow its procedures, according to the OSHA citations. The mechanic and the co-worker beside him were not to blame.

    'They were not faulted in any way. They should have received the training they needed,' said Elizabeth Todd, a Dallas-based spokeswoman for OSHA.
