On September 7, 2010, Employee #1 was operating an all-terrain forklift. He was working with a crew that was installing five 24-in. steel beams for an antenna tower control building. He helped to install three steel beams by delivering them from the north side. He brought the last two beams from the east side where the bank had a steep slope. The forklift did not reach far enough, so Employee #1 backed down the steep bank at an angle. Employee #1 was killed when he jumped from the forklift as it flipped over. The back wheel crushed his chest.
