Employee #1 worked in the melting section of a foundry. The charge bucket was set down in the pit, where the doors were not able to close. The charge bucket was not seated, so it was tilted and leaned to one side. Employee #1 climbed onto a charge bucket to hook the sling and chain to the bucket's ears so that the overhead crane would be able to lift it up. Employee #1 positioned himself between a steel beam and the large ears of the charge bucket and tried to push the charge bucket away from the beam. The charge bucket moved toward Employee #1 and the large ear pinning him in the chest against the steel beam. Employee #1 was killed.
