Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14257976Event: 04/04/1991Three Employees Injured In Fall When Wall Collapsed
Employees #1 and #2, both masons, were on a scaffold laying the last course of concrete blocks on a 40 ft long by 15 ft high interior wall of a two-story townhouse. Employee #3, a mason tender, was passing blocks to Employees #1 and #2. A strong gust of wind blew the block wall onto the scaffold. As the wall and scaffold collapsed, the additional weight caused the first and second floors of the townhouse to also collapse. All three employees fell with the debris, landing in the basement. Employees #1 and #2 sustained compound fractures and were hospitalized. Employee #3 broke his nose.
