At approximately 11:00 a.m. on June 21, 2000, Employee #1, age 19, was using a scaffold platform to lay blocks on a wall when a forklift operator hoisted a 15-piece bundle of 20 ft long, 5/8 in. rebar to the platform. In an attempt to help land the rebar onto the platform, Employee #1 stood on an 8 in. by 8 in. by 16 in. long concrete block and tried to lift the bundle to set it atop the frame.

Employee #1 suffered a fractured left wrist, fractured lower jaw, and a severe laceration on his lower lip. He was transported by paramedics to Chino Valley Medical Center, where he was hospitalized for three days. No violations were found and no citations were issued.
