Employee #1 was tearing out a section of weather damaged hardwood flooring in a building. Coworkers told him to move his foot off a section of sub-floor that appeared to be weak to support his weight. The employee did not listen to their warnings and remained on the floor. The sub-floor broke and his right foot went through the floor, causing him to fall from a standing position to a sitting position, with one foot dangling between the third and fourth floor. The employee was transported to the hospital complaining of back pain and was hospitalized for several days.
