At approximately 7:30 a.m. on March 11, 2011, Employee #1 was located on the dome of a 6-million gallon circular prestressed concrete water tank. He was assigned to bend and cut the rebar in the front of the 13 spill ways. As Employee #1 used a scaffolding system to reach the top of the dome, he hollered to a coworker to retrieve a rebar cutter. The coworker retrieved the cutter and climbed to the top of the dome and continued working where they had left off the day before. However, after Employee #1 failed to assist with the work, the coworker began to look for him. Employee #1 was discovered on the ground; he had fallen 30 feet through the wire rope hand rail system and the planking of the scaffolding. The coworker contacted emergency services and performed CPR until medical personnel arrived. Employee #1 was determined dead after a medical evaluation.
