Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201175296Event: 02/23/2004Employee' S Neck Crushed By Falling Counter Top
At about 12:28 p.m. on February 23, 2004, Employee #1 of the Normac Kitchens Incorporated, located in Sacramento, California, was unloading countertops from a trailer. Employee #1 unloaded a number of tops standing on the end and near the front of the trailer. When there were 11 tops left, standing against the right wall of the trailer, the remaining tops fell over away from the wall and struck Employee #1's head. Employee #1 fell to the deck of the trailer. He was found by a coworker, who was also engaged in unloading the trailer. The left wall kept the tops away from falling to the trailer floor and further injuring Employee #1. However, the blow to Employee #1's head had enough force to fracture his neck. Employee #1 was permanently paralyzed.
