On May 8, 2010, Employee #1, a part-time employee who would come by each day and ask if the company had work, was removing produce from a truck. Apparently, the worksite was at the home of the company owner. Employee #1 had finished work and was entering the glass enclosed back porch, when his hand went through the plate glass window. A piece of glass came down and cut the main blood vessels in Employee #1's arm. Employee #1 was working by himself and bled to death, before he could get help. The owner and her family found Employee #1 an hour later.
