At 2:00 p.m. on September 3, 2020, an employee was working in a trench to receiv e a manhole cone as it was lowered into the excavation. As the excavator operato r lifted the arm out of the trench, a chain attached to the arm of the excavator caught onto the lifting point of the cone, which caused it to slip off and fall onto the employee.
