Information:

The fitter was taking the wheel off a Joy 10SC32B shuttle car to repair the steering assembly. He had taken off all of the wheel assembly nuts, and it seems it was difficult for him to take the wheel off the hub.

He took off some or all of the split rim assembly nuts. The tyre and outer rim then blew off violently and hit him. The impact threw him into the rib and he landed several metres away. The tyre landed on top of him.
