Employee #1 and Employee #2 were cutting out sections of a bridge surface made of concrete slabs approximately 5 ft wide by 16 ft long. Employee #1 working on a slab that was rigged to a crane with a 4-legged sling just completed cutting the last transverse structural tie free on his side. Employee #1 then unhooked his safety lanyard to bend over the side and pick up his torch. Part of Employee #1's weight was on a weak spot in the center of the slab which broke in half causing him to fall through the center of the slab 80 ft to the ground. Employee #1 died of a concussion.
