Three employees of Victor Sosa Construction, Inc. were working to repair the roof on a structure in Salem, MA. That work included removing gravel by hand from the flat roof and placing it in sandbags. Those sandbags were then lowered by a rope and pulley mechanism to the ground below where they were emptied into a truck. Employees #2 and 3 were working on the roof, and Employee#1 was working on the ground. At some point, a sand bag full of roof gravel (weight was approximately 40-60 lbs), which was still attached to the rope and hook, fell downward without any resistance, striking Employee # 1 on the head. Employee # 1 was killed.
