Abstract: On January 4, 2006, Employee #1, an automobile mechanic, climbed to the top of a tanker truck that had previously contained molten sulfur. Employee #1 opened the hatch at the top of the tanker to adjust a marker rod, which allowed a visual indication of the level of volume of the product within the tanker. He entered the tanker without airline respiratory protection. At this time a coworker, equipped with a respirator, attempted to rescue Employee #1, without success. Employee #1 died as a result of a heart attack.
