Information:

A length of 50mm bull-hose was being unwound from a steel drum on the surface of an underground coal mine. The free end of the hose was secured to a parked vehicle. The drum was connected to a forklift with nylon rope and reversed up an access road, rolling the drum back along the ground. When the nylon rope broke, the hose knocked an observer to the ground. The drum then rolled back striking the unconcious man.
