    As Derekleffew has posted a memorial post in another thread, let's take this thread to discuss what happened. I'd love to hear any more info that comes out about how, exactly, a scaffolding collapses. As Derek posted, the deceased individual was an extremely safety conscious person, how is it that the scaff collapsed? Was the weight of the whole truss rig dropped onto it ? Was it improperly assembled ? any further info would be useful towards preventing such accidents in the future.

    It just seems to me that more and more of these things are happening latelly. Not a good thing at all. There are still WAY to many people who are in a hurry to do things more quickly, instead of safely.

    From what I can discern Dave...this is an instance of where someone who did do things safely got hurt/killed because of someone else doing something quickly.

    I haven't read a lot about this, but it sounded to me like something fell and struck the scaffold the deceased were on. I didn't think the cause has really been established yet and I don't think it's appropriate to speculate.

    Along with Derek's (a friend of the deceased) comments from another thread I stand by my previous post.
