On July 3, 2009, Employee #1 and the owner were painting the roof of a building. The roof had an approximate pitch of 7:12. Employee #1 was holding a 5-gallon bucket of aluminum oil based paint, while the owner painted the roof with a roller and extension. During the work, Employee #1 apparently lost his balance, spilling the paint on the roof and slipping. He fell over the roof ledge, catching onto a 3 in. tin lip on the roof. Before a ladder could be setup to retrieve him, Employee #1 fell approximately 40 ft and struck the concrete sidewalk and asphalt road below. He died from unspecified injuries sustained in the fall.
