At this location, the canal was approximately 26 ft deep. Employee #1 drowned. He was wearing rubber boots, but not a work vest or life jacket. The drydock did not have any guardrails. There were no actual eyewitnesses that saw him falling. One employee heard him holler, looked around, and saw his hands as they submerged.
