Employees #1 through #5 were working on the platform of a Morgan Tower scaffold, located 19 feet, 4 inches above the ground. A cotter pin was missing from the sheave pin, which molds the 4-inch sheave in the sheave assembly. Two employees raised the scaffold by turning the winch lifting leaver, causing the sheave pin to come out. The winch cable was then free with nothing to support the carriage and platform. The scaffold platform fell and all 5 employees fell to the ground. Employees #1 through #5 were taken to the hospital, suffering from multiple injuries.
