At 11:14 a.m. on December 19, 2002, Employee #1 was working as a general manager for a garment manufacturing company. He called a maintenance contractor several times to check the leakage of the roof, but the contractor did not show up. Employee #1 arranged to get to roof #1 by a lift jack. He unfolded an 8-foot aluminum portable step ladder, leaned the ladder against the building, and then climbed it to check the water leakage in the building on roof #2. Roof #1 is 11- ft. 9-in. high and roof #2 is 19 ft, 4 in. high, with a gap of 2 ft. 8 in. between roof #1 and roof # 2. While Employee #1 was standing on the ladder and checking the roof, the ladder slid and he fell 15 feet through the gap between the two roofs. Employee #1 was hospitalized with a head injury, including 36 stitches on his head and a concussion. The ladder was thrown away by the employer after the accident.
