At 9:40 a.m. on May 22, 2003, Employee #1, a truck loader at a silo complex, was removing a basket full of cement debris, located at the end of a loading chute on a bulk cement silo.

Employee #1 fell approximately 12 feet to a concrete floor. Employee #1 was hospitalized and treated for a shattered right elbow, which required surgery, and a broken right wrist.
