On May 10, 2001, Employee #1 and a coworker were installing fence posts on a residence that had just been built. The coworker who was operating a backhoe just finished pushing a 4-ft by 4-ft post into the ground with the bucket of the hoe. When he lifted the bucket from above the post and began to move it to the side, a hydraulic hose on the bucket's lifting cylinder failed, allowing the bucket to drop. Employee #1 was standing under the bucket and was crushed when the bucket dropped. He died of injures sustained in the accident.
