On March 28, 2005, Employee #1 and his supervisor, both electricians, were pulling wiring through a new section of conduit. Employee #1 was pulling the wire through the conduit as his supervisor fed him the wire. During their work, they took a short break in order to relocate some scaffolding. Shortly after the break, the supervisor called to Employee #1, instructing him to begin pulling again; however, there was no response. The supervisor went to check on Employee #1 and found him slumped over and unconscious. Emergency services were contacted and CPR was administered. Upon arrival of emergency services, advanced life support was performed with not success. Employee #1 was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. It was determined that cause of death was due to a heart attack.
