At 6:30 p.m. on February 27, 2018, Employee #1 and Coworker #1, employed by a construction company, were working at a multiemployer project, the construction of an underground pipeline. They were working on a tunnel boring machine and using an overhead gantry crane to off-load three curved precast concrete segments. The segments were stacked 6 feet high, and each measured approximately 5 feet by 9 feet by 10 inches thick and weighed 11,000 pounds. Employee #1 climbed to the top of the stack in an attempt to connect the crane to the top concrete segment and begin the off-loading process. The stack of concrete segments began to tilt, and Employee #1's left leg was caught and pinned between the tipped segments and an adjacent steel wall. Emergency services were called, and Employee #1 was transported to the hospital. He was admitted and treated for compound fractures of both the tibia and fibula bones in his left leg. Employee #1 remained hospitalized for 24 days.
