At approximately 1:15 p.m. on June 13, 2005, Employee #1, a 56-year old supervisory employee, was riding the lawnmower in a cemetery. Employee #1 was operating the lawnmower on an inclined ditch, approximately 4.5-ft to 5-ft deep, when the mower flipped over backwards, pinning Employee #1 beneath the mower. Another employee lifted the mower off of Employee #1. Employee #1 continued working the day of the incident and the following two days on June 14, 2005 and June 15, 2005.

On June 18, 2005, Employee #1 was at a park with his family and sustained a cardiac arrest. He died. The pain and stress from the initial accident was determined to be a significant condition contributing to the death.
