At approximately 5:40 p.m. on October 24, 1990, Employee #1 was using a 5-ton overhead bridge crane to lift a 28 ft long metal H-column. He intended to stack the column in a storage area west of the shop. Employee #1 had to raise the column to waist level to clear some structures before moving it. When he pushed the switch, the column moved toward him and pinned him on his back. He sustained injuries that required hospitalization. Employee #2 tried to free him by pushing on the column. It swayed back at him, striking and injuring his arm.
