At approximately 3:10 p.m. on December 10, 1991, Employee #1 was cutting steel I-beam supports to remove a stair structure that was 30 ft long and extended to a platform that was 24 ft high. As the employee made his second cut, the weight of the structure caused it to break free and slide down the steel upright support poles. After the structure reached the fulcrum point of the upright steel supports, the weight of the concrete slab forced the upright supports to fail and bend toward Employee #1. He was crushed to death between the concrete slab and the stairs.
