On March 28, 2009, Employee #1, an outside worker whose job was to assist retail customers load their lumber or building material purchases, was standing in a lumber storage area. Much of the lumber was reportedly stacked in bundles at least 11 ft high, and many of the stacks were visibly leaning. Near Employee 1 was a stack of 8 ft landscaping timbers that was 6 bundles high. At around 2:15 p.m., a crashing sound was heard. Upon investigation, Employee #1 was found under a collapsed pile of the timbers. He was killed. The cause of the accident was improper stacking and securing of the timber bundles.
