Employee #1 was cutting a concrete curb and slab into a building support column. To complete the cut, he raised the saw blade guard. When the cut was finished, he backed the saw away from the column. Employee #1 proceeded to use a pry bar to remove the concrete, which came off in slabs. This caused the pry bar to slip and he fell backward onto the still-running saw. Employee #1 sustained a severe laceration across his back and side. He was transported to the hospital, where he died three days later.
