After this most recent severe snowstorm, it has been a long couple of weeks
for you and your team. Being the newly promoted head supervisor for a
large landscaping company, calls to your branch have been coming in hourly
to clean up fallen trees, and prevent any further property damage.
Breaking down the last few branches on the lawn of your most recent client,
you take a step back, and admire your team's handiwork. Pleased with
the hard work dedicated to this job, you are certain that the property
owner will be satisfied.
Walking over to a company truck, you toss the branches into the back of
the pickup, with the rest of the debris, and signal for the driver to
leave. As the vehicle moves forward, a large log breaks free from the
pile, and slams against the back of the truck bed. Due to the force of
the collision, the hatch breaks open, and the log flies off the end of
With less that a second to leap out of the way, you are unable to escape
the path of the falling debris, and the log crashes into the side of your
left leg. Upon impact, a screaming pain emits from your thigh, and you
are unable to move your leg. With your team swiftly removing the log from
your person, emergency services are called, and you painfully await the
arrival of an ambulance.
