The two employees were unloading crates of granite. There were two crates of granite, one stacked on top of the other. Employee #1 had placed a chain around one end of the lower crate and attached the other end of the chain to the mast of the forklift truck. The forklift truck then proceeded to pull the crates to the rear of the container when the bottom crate failed, causing the upper crate to shift and partially roll to one side, crushing Employee #1 between the upper crate and the container side. Employee #1 was asphyxiated.
