On September 20, 2010, Employee #1 was connecting iron, approximately 11.5 ft high. He was walking on the iron to move away from iron being delivered on a hook by a Skytrac Model Number 154 and he lost his balance and fell. An unconfirmed report suggests that the iron being delivered bumped into the erected iron but that report contradicts a witness statement that Employee #1 lost his balance. Employee #1 was hospitalized with a fractured chest.
