At approximately 11:15 a.m. on December 11, 1996, Employee #1 backed a dump truck onto a 20 ft long barge so that a crane could load the truck with material being dredged from the bottom of Lake Gaston. At approximately 11:45 a.m., the dump truck had been loaded and the crane operator blew his crane horn to inform the employee to leave the barge. Employee #1 had his truck in reverse gear, and instead of moving forward, he started backing up. He backed off the west end of the barge and drowned.
