At approximately 10:30 a.m. on November 7, 2008, Employee #1 was working at a worksite for concrete company. Concrete was being poured into curb forms. The concrete was being supplied to the work location by a concrete bucket supported by a tower crane. A concrete hopper/funnel was attached below the concrete bucket's gate, which directed the wet concrete into a 6-in. diameter flexible hose that was 38-in. long. The employee was directing the 6-in. hose into the forms positioning the wet cement. The hopper/funnel broke free from its support device, and wet cement knocked down the employee and covered him. Employee #1 suffered unspecified injuries to his back and tailbone and was hospitalized.
