Employees #1 and #2 were part of a crew erecting a steel structure. After placing a steel beam into position, they approached the cab of a crane and spoke with the operator about the next lift. The operator needed to reposition the boom before the next load could be rigged. As the crane operator began to retract the boom, a lattice boom extension fell from the side of it and struck Employee #1 in the head. He was killed.
