On June 22, 2010, Employee #1, #2, #3, and #4 were rebuilding a bridge that recent floods had partially washed out. They removed three sections of the bridge and replaced the piers. They were using a Little Giant 48-Ton crane to remove the sections of concrete slabs. As they were sliding the first section of concrete slab back into place, the boom cable of the crane broke. This caused the boom to fall onto all four employees. Employee #1 received a concussion, Employee #2 fractured his leg, and Employee #3 and #4 received bruises and contusions. All four employees were hospitalized.
