On the morning of October 27, 2010, Employee #1, a 49-yr-old male roofing supervisor, was inspecting various repaired roof leaks at the top of a three-floor department store. As he was descending from a 20-ft fixed metal ladder accessing a maintenance room, one of the supervisor's fingers caught a serrated edge of the ladder, causing him to tumble off the last rung. The partial degloving was at first thought to be not of a serious nature; however, the lacerated condition of the finger worsened with an infection, resulting in a 12-day hospitalization.
