Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200758969 Event: 08/04/2010Two Employees Are Killed When Trapped Beneath Collapsed Barn
At approximately 2:08 p.m. on August 4, 2010, Employees #1 and #2 were renovating a chicken barn that required the repair of a 100 foot section of masonry wall that was located on the exterior of the barn. Both Employees #1 and #2 were laborers that were assisting masons to complete the task. During work, severe weather struck with high winds that were estimated to be 60-70 mph. While two masons were laying the first course of block for the 100 foot section of masonry wall, Employees #1 and #2 were located in a concrete bucket of a rough terrain forklift, grouting the block wall. As they were working, the high winds, and possible tornado, caused the barn to collapse, trapping Employees #1 and #2 beneath the debris. Both Employees #1 and #2 were killed.
