At approximately 11:30 p.m. on November 20, 1992, Employees #1, #2, and #3 were working on a Wizzard line boning meat. Someone placed a trolley on the return side of a round conveyor, and the trolley caught the guardrail of a nearby work bench. The work bench stood adjacent to a tile block partition wall 46 in. high. The movement of the trolley pulling the bench knocked the wall over, causing it to strike Employees #2 and #3. Employee #1 saw the wall strike Employee #2 and apparently fainted, injuring her back. Employee #3 was struck by the wall and suffered contusions to the upper back, right shoulder, and right rib area. Employee #2 was struck by the wall and was pushed into the conveyor bench, causing multiple internal injuries from which she died.
