On the morning of May 5, 2000, Employee #1 was on the first level of a scaffold cleaning plaster overspray from the windows. He climbed down from the scaffold and jumped to the ground landing on a piece of rebar that was sticking up. The scaffold had railings but he swung from one instead of climbing down the ladder. It is unknown whether the rebar was capped. The rebar impaled him in the abdomen and he screamed for help from his coworker who had to raise him up high enough to get off of the tip. He was hospitalized.
