February 20, 1947, Mae Raymond was in the employ of petitioner's insured, Rothschild & Kaufman Company, whose factory was located at 931 East Pico Street in Los Angeles. While sitting at and operating a power machine for her employer an explosion occurred at an electroplating establishment across the street at 922. Her machine was stationed about a foot from the west wall of her employer's building. She did not see or hear anything but a flash of light just before losing consciousness. On awakening a steel-framed window was pressed upon her head and shoulders. It had been blown from the west wall by the force of the explosion. It was 12 x 15 feet and enclosed steel sashes with panes reinforced with wire. Its momentum caused serious bodily injuries to Mrs. Raymond on account of which she applied to respondent commission for adjustment of her compensation. The extent of her injuries and the amount of the award are not issues on this review. Inasmuch as petitioner denies all liability by reason of the fact that the window was dislodged by the force of the explosion in the plating plant the circumstances of the event will first be scheduled.
