Investigation Summary

Investigation Nr: 200003143
Event: 08/11/2011
Employee Is Killed In Fall Off Tower

At approximately 10:00 a.m. on August 11, 2011, several employees were tasked with dismantling an Anderson M-46 100-ft cellular tower that was no longer needed. This tower was located on the south side of Image Road, between Highway 11 and Inman Road. The tower was assembled using five 20-ft triangular sections with saddles bolted to the legs to attach one section to the next, making the tower progressively taller. There was a triangular platform on top of the tower, housing the cellular antennas. After the antenna platform had been removed, three of the employees climbed the faces of the tower to approximately 80 feet to unbolt the top section of the tower for removal by a truck mounted crane. Employee #1 fell from the tower, 80 feet to the ground below. Emergency medical services were notified and arrived within minutes. Employee #1 was alive, but unresponsive. He was transported by air ambulance to University Hospital, where he died shortly after arrival.
