On April 23, 2009, Employee #1, a pipefitter, was assigned to check a 2-in. spool section that was located above the preflash deck in the new crude unit. It had an extension cord wrapped around it, giving the impression that the cord may have been securing the pipe to a vertical support member. Upon accessing the preflash deck, Employee #1 stepped away from the ladder. He fell through an open hole in the decking, that was within 2 to 3 ft of the ladder, 40 ft to the ground and died.
