Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 94119.015Event: 03/21/2017Employee Is Struck By Falling Object Later Dies At Hospital
At approximately 4:30 p.m. on March 21, 2017, Employee #1 was unloading boxes containing department store goods from a semi-trailer. An undetermined number of boxes fell on him causing a blunt force trauma to his chest. The number of boxes that struck him was not determined since there were no witnesses and he did not report it at the time. Employee #1 did mention at the end of his shift to his supervisor that some boxes fell but he was okay. The following morning Employee #1 informed his supervisor that he wasn't feeling well and was going to the hospital. At the hospital it was noted that he had pneumonia, a heart condition, and was struck by boxes. Employee #1 was immediately taken in for heart surgery and he passed away at the hospital approximately 2 weeks later.
