As all the workers left, the monkeys came down the branches and began jumping and playing with the instruments scattered across the area.

One monkey was interested in the wedge between a couple of logs. It sat between the tops of the halves, split logs, and began pulling the wedge out.

Suddenly, the wedge popped out and, as a result, the log fragmented, and the monkey became caught in the gap between shattered twigs. He was severely injured.
