Abstract: At approximately 2:30 a.m. on June 6, 1991, Employee #1, an ironworker, was attempting to position an I-beam onto a dolly from a forklift being operated by his supervisor. The 1-1/2-ton beam was lying diagonally across the two forks of the 7-ton forklift truck. As the beam was being either lowered or raised (neither Employee #1 nor the supervisor could remember which), it slipped off the dolly and fell on Employee #1's right leg. He was transported by paramedics to the Kaiser Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
