On February 17, 1991, Employee #1, a superintendent for a general contractor, went to an inactive job site. He was apparently prying loose a 2 by 6 board that was bolted to the outside of the building near the top to allow the roofers to slip flashing behind it. While he was pushing on a crow bar to loosen the board, he fell 33 ft from the flat roof of the building to the ground. He died.
