At approximately 3:20 p.m. on April 27, 1994, Employees #2, #3, #4, #8, and #9, iron workers, were working 35 ft above the ground on top of a single-story steel warehouse that was under construction. Employees #1, #5, #6, and #7 were working on the structure's ground level. Dark clouds appeared in the distance to the west of the construction site. Employees #2, #3, #4, #8, and #9 were instructed to come down from the structure because a storm was approaching. Suddenly, a strong gust of wind hit the structure and it collapsed. Employee #1 was struck by a vertical steel column, which crushed his chest, killing him. Employees #2 through #9 received various minor and serious injuries. Employee #7 was hospitalized overnight.
