Employee #1 was rigging while the contractor was performing shoring operations with a boom-type mobile crane (Linkbelt, HSP-22, 22-ton). The crane's hoisting line was not in use and the crane did not have a two-block device, which would have prevented the ball from being sheared when the crane's boom was extended/boomed up. The crane operator was attentive of the load and load line, but, when extending the boom, the secondary line's ball sheared off and fell to the ground. It struck Employee #1's left leg, fracturing it. No accident-related citation was issued.
