Nicholas Carrier had worked at the Grand Lake Timber planer mill since 2012, but on July 13, 2017, he was called to look at an outside feeder deck for wood that wasn't operating properly. While Carrier was under the deck, a loader car- rying wood to be fed into the plant arrived, back- ing up to the feeder deck. The loader operator noticed the feeder had begun to operate when he approached, and he also noticed Carrier was beneath the feeder, so he quickly stopped his vehicle. He angrily ap- proached Carrier to ask about his behaviour.
