Employee #1 was on a bridge pier when the boom pendant line of a nearby crane failed. He was struck by either the crane boom or by parts of the boom rigging, and was knocked 10 ft off the pier. Employee #1 sustained injuries that required hospitalization. The crane operator was also injured when the failed pendant line snapped back and smashed through the windshield of his cab. Subsequent investigation revealed that the crane was operating beyond its capacity (as noted on the load capacity chart), and that it had not had an annual inspection since 1992.
