At approximately 4:00 p.m. on November 4, 1995, Employee #1 arrived at a four-story masonry garage to start work for the first time at this location. His job as a parking attendant was to take the manlift to the floor where a car was located and then to drive it to the customer. A coworker showed Employee #1 how to use the manlift. At approximately 7:00 p.m., the coworker was in the basement moving a car when he heard a scream. When he turned, he saw Employee #1 in the manlift pit up to his waist, with a step that was crushing his chest. The manlift shut off by itself, and then a coworker cut the power. Rescue personnel arrived and had to cut off the step to remove Employee #1, who was unresponsive and unconscious. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at Bellview Hospital. Employee #1 had worked for the company for two weeks at another location that was not equipped with a manlift. No one from management was present when he arrived at the garage.
