Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14396113Event: 10/23/1992Employee Killed When Struck By Falling Objects
At approximately 12:15 p.m. on October 23, 1992, Employee #1 was eating lunch on a raised area adjacent to a concrete pour being performed on a section of a lock and dam project on the Red River. A 225 ton American crane was transporting a 5 cubic yard metal concrete bucket to the pour area. Employee #1 was directly in the path of the concrete bucket's swing route. A failure of the ball bearing swivel between the cable and the headache ball caused the headache ball, hook, and attached concrete bucket to fall directly onto Employee #1. He was killed.
