At approximately 9:30 a.m. on September 2, 2008, Employee #1, an inspector, was at a cinema roof, performing steel inspection. He was feeling a little weak and went down stairs to the restroom. In the bathroom he started to sweat so he walked towards his work box area, where a coworker gave him some milk. The employee immediately vomited and emergency medical services were called. He was taken to the hospital and was given an injection to prevent nausea and vomiting. A hand held nebulizer treatment with breathing medication was administered because he sounded congested. Employee #1 was diagnosed with weakness, malaise, fatigue and near syncope but was not hospitalized. He was released after four hours without any work restrictions and was advised that his blood work and EKG were normal. The employee attributes his symptoms and condition to his personal medical condition and not work related. He did not want to disclose additional information about his medical condition and did not want to sign a medical record release form the hospital.
