This happened as the ceiling appeared to have a leak and the rain water combined with William ’ s heavy breathing, as he had rushed to enter the suit, set the spring locks off. ) The second way these accidents can occur is when an employee fails to correctly wind the springlocks all the way improving, causing them to burst on the person inside.
