Employee #1 was keeping warm in a company truck. A 200-ton lattice boom truck crane was picking up a concrete beam. The crane began to tip over, causing the load to land on the previously placed beam and a retaining wall. The crane tipped back and the superstructure and boom rotated 180 degrees, causing the boom to collapse at its lower section in the direction of the lift. An alarm was sounded and Employee #1 began to run away from the truck. The crane boom came down and the tip struck Employee #1, killing him.
