I approached the line to observe closer and observed another drop fall from the same area, I then observed the drops of water on the ceiling seam above the light dropping on to the light. I took regulatory control of the cut-up line and stopped the operation. I notified Mr. cut-up department (lead person) that I had taken regulatory control of the cut-up line, at which time the line started to move again, I notified the hanger at the belt to stop the cut-up line again and discovered that Mr. had restarted the line with out knowing why it had been stopped.
