At approximately 8:00 a.m. on April 29, 1999, Employees #1, #2, #3, #4, #5. #6 and #7 were standing on the canvas of the partially deflated air dome structure to push it in so other workers could remove the 2-in. by 4-in. posts that were securing the canvas in place. While Employees #1 through #7 were on the canvas, a gust of wind reinflated the air dome and Employees #1 through #7 rose approximately 15 to 20 ft in the air and fell from the air structure to the asphalt parking lot. Employees #1 through #7 received multiple injuries (fractures, bruises, contusions, and abrasions) to their bodies and extremities. They were hospitalized.
