The work consisted of placing concrete in the formwork for the basement walls using an articulating boom concrete pumping truck. The employee may have suffered an epileptic seizure prior to falling off the scaffold, which was not provided with standard guardrails. He struck his head on wooden studs on the bottom of the elevator shaft and died.
