At approximately 1:15 p.m. on March 9, 2001, Employee # 1 was on a boat in the water underneath the telescoping boom of a Badger hydraulic crane. As the boom continued to telescope out, it two-blocked when the hook assembly contacted the boom sheave. This put excessive tension on the hook assembly hoist cable. The cable broke and the hook assembly fell directly on top of Employee #1. He was killed.
