On August 1, 2011, a concrete manhole was being lowered into an excavation with a backhoe bucket. Chains were used to attach the manhole to the bucket. Employee #1 in the excavation for some unknown reason placed his head and shoulders between the manhole, which was resting on the ground, and the bucket of the trackhoe. A hydraulic hose on the trackhoe failed, and this caused the bucket to fall. Employee #1was caught between the trackhoe bucket and the concrete manhole.
