At 10:10 A.M. on October 7, 1985, Employee #1, an ironworker, fell down an elevator shaft in a building under construction. He was standing on temporary decking assisting another ironworker who was working on a float scaffold in the elevator shaft. He leaned against the railing which surrounded the opening around the elevator shaft. The anchorage for the safety line, a washer welded to a column, gave way. Employee #1 fell about 50 feet and sustained a fatal fracture.
