On April 16, 2003, Employees #1, #2, and #3, carpentry contractors, were carrying a 5-ft by 6-ft window with double paned glass down the temporary stairs from the second floor to the first floor. The employees were removing an existing window from the house.

While carrying the window down the temporary stairs, the stairway collapsed under the men. The two employees in the lead were approximately three steps from the landing. The employees fell approximately 12 to 15 ft to the concrete basement floor. Employee #1 received a compressed vertebra and a fractured leg, and Employees #2 and #3 received bruises and contusions from the fall. The employees were hospitalized.
