At 3:00 a.m. on May 20, 2023, an employee was in a scissor lift, installing a cable for a Wi-Fi access point in a retail building. As the employee was pulling the cable through the ceiling rafters, the cable swung hitting the light fixture. The employee suddenly paused, went limp, and fell onto boxes located in the scissor lift that were at the same height as the mid rail. The employee appeared to come to and rolled over through the top rail and the mid rail of the guardrail system of the scissor lift. The employee sustained blunt force trauma to the head and body, and potentially sustained electrical shock. The employee was transported to the hospital, where he later died.
