Abstract: At approximately 7:38 p.m. on July 3, 1990, Employee #1 was performing his normal duties as a serviceman in the Vac Braze Bridge area. The bridge was moving from the cooler to the work table where heater cores would be unloaded and new ones put on. Employee #1 stepped between a steel column just as the bridge was passing.

He sustained a puncture from the bridge guide in the upper buttocks and a crushed chest. He was hospitalized in Erie County Medical Center and died at approximately 5:50 p.m. on July 4, 1990.
