On July 30, 2003, Employee #1 was a crew member working on dismantling a post and a beam farm barn. He was removing the beams that supported the roof rafters using a JCB 805C rough terrain fork truck. A 20-ft long, 8 in.-by-8-in. beam, attached to the forks by fabric straps, was being lifted by the truck. It started to descend when the truck tipped to the left. The truck rolled over on its left side bringing to the ground the forks and Employee #1 who was working from the truck forks. Employee #1 was killed in an approximately 30-ft fall from a crane. The autopsy report listed traumatic injuries, including large laceration of the right ventricle, as the cause of death.
