Abstract: Employee #1 and a coworker were on the 12 ft high roof of a Douglas County School District building. The coworker was taking apart a brick chimney, and Employee #1 was using a wheelbarrow to haul the bricks to the edge of the roof, where he dropped them to the ground. As the employee reached for a couple of bricks, the wheelbarrow tipped over and its handles hit him in the knees, knocking him off the roof. He landed on his left leg, fracturing and dislocating bones in his foot, for which he was hospitalized.
