On June 23, 2008, Employee #1 and a coworker were on an over 10-ft high mobile fabricated frame scaffold with a work platform. They used a concrete slab with a 4.5 slope. As the scaffold was being pushed along by Employee #2 and being pulled along by Employee #1 and the coworker on the platform, the right rear wheel came off the slab, overturning the scaffold. The coworker held on to the structural steel, however; Employee #1 fell with the scaffold and sustained concussion to his head. Employee #2 was pinned under the scaffold and sustained sprain and strain of his back. Employee #1 died at the hospital.
