They rigged a blowout preventer to a crane moved through the warehouse and loaded it onto a tractor trailer. The coworker assisted the truck driver in securing the blowout preventer while Employee #1 went back into the warehouse to rig and move another one. Employee #1 moved the crane with a blowout preventer attached, while walking forward of the load. The blowout preventer rotated on the hook and crushed Employee #1 between the ram cylinders of the blowout preventer and a steel cable reel that was positioned next to the walkway. Before the coworker or the truck driver could get to Employee #1, the blowout preventer struck Employee #1 again killing him.
