The product (brand new) was being used to cut a hole in a drywall ceiling 5 inches in diameter for a recessed lighting fixture. Upon cutting the third hole, the center drill bit broke and the cutting blades bound up in the drywall which caused the drill motor to spin instead, the force of which twisted my hands (both of them) around and sent the drill motor flying across the room. This resulted in a trip to the urgent care center which determined I had multiple stress fractures in my right hand.
