Employee #1 and coworkers were removing a run of abandoned 2 in. diameter pipe next to the Texaco Administration Building. The crew had been removing 40 ft sections of pipe at a time. They were taking out the last length of pipe and pulling it from under the sidewalk when it became caught on a 6 in. stub of pipe about 1/2 in. above the surface that was covered with leaves. The 2 in. pipe became airborne and traveled approximately 20 ft before striking Employee #1 in the face, knocking him down. The pipe landed on his leg, fracturing his femur.
