On May 10, 2013, Employee #1 and a coworker were fabricating a lime silo. The bottom and two center sections were already completed. The employees had moved the silo head onto a roller unit that allowed the head section to be joined with the rest of the silo. As the employees moved the head section closer to the rest of the silo, the head section became unbalanced and flipped over backwards, striking Employee #1 in the head. The employee was transported to an area hospital, where he later died.
