At approximately 3:15 p.m. on March 6, 1999, Employee #1 was part of an inspection crew moving material from the X-ray building to the storage shed. Another sling was needed to move the items. Employee #1 was walking around the side of the building toward a storage area when he stepped on boards covering a 3 ft long by 5 ft wide by 1 1/2 ft deep sump used to discharge hot water and steam. The planks broke and he fell into the 160 degree F water. Employee #1 immediately jumped out, but not before suffering burns on his lower legs and feet. Emergency rescue personnel responded to the scene and transported Employee #1 to the UC Davis Medical Center, where he was hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns.
