On November 22, 2005, Employee #1 was working as a forklift operator. He was traveling in an aisle on a high-lift, stand-up type forklift with the forks raised approximately eighteen feet. He made a right turn into a route that had a perpendicular building support beam at a height of approximately nineteen feet. The load backrest, which extended 48 inches above the forks, hit the support beam, causing the forklift to tip backward. Employee #1 attempted to jump clear of the lift, but he was fatally crushed by the falling forklift.
