Employee Is Crushed And Killed By Falling Boom

At approximately 10:30 a.m. on October 4, 2007, Employee #1, a welder, was removing a motor from a compressor with the use of the boom, also known as a stinger. With the motor rigged to the boom attachment, Employee #1 gave hand signals to the front-end loader operator while standing underneath the boom which weighed approximately 900 pounds.

Employee #1 was crushed and died from injuries sustained from being struck by the material handling boom.
