Abstract: Employee #1, a longshoreman, was on top of the fiberglass covers of a hopper barge, opening up the grain inspection door. He apparently slipped on the damp cover and fell onto the catwalk of the barge. The barge was tied up alongside a cargo ship and, just at this time, a tugboat passed by and the barge swung away from the ship by a few feet. Employee #1 fell into the river between the barge and the ship and is presumed to have drowned. Witnesses stated that he was not wearing a work vest.
