At 3:30 p.m. on April 27, 2018, an employee was inside an engineered trench box/ shoring system and was compacting fill at about 4 feet deep. A coworker attache d a bridal chain from a CAT 420D pick point so that a linear rail could be lifte d out with a backhoe. The backhoe was not large enough to remove the rail and t he hook and chain slackened so additional bridal legs could be attached. The ra il spun around and the safety latch on the hook broke, allowing the rail to fall into the trench box and striking the employee in the head, killing him.
