Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14511273Event: 07/17/1985Employee Killed In Trench Cave-In
Employee #1, age 18, and a coworker were in a 8 ft deep by 4 ft wide trench, making connections to two existing pipes that had been installed about five months earlier. The coworker had left the trench to get some material when the north wall collapsed, pinning Employee #1 against the opposite wall. He suffered a crushed chest, and a ruptured right lung, liver, and right adrenal gland. He was killed. The trench was dug in a backfilled area and was not sloped, shored, sheeted, or braced. A John Deere 410 backhoe had been used to dig the trench.
