On the afternoon of March 9, 2018, Employee #1, employed by a drywall company, was working alone at a one-story residential renovation project. He was using an 8-foot rolling scaffold, a 3-foot rolling scaffold, and a 6-foot A-frame ladder and installing joint compound on drywall joints. Employee #1 apparently fell from one of these aerial devices. He remained on the floor for approximately 18 hours before he was found. Emergency medical services were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital. He was admitted and treated for massive head trauma.
