    Closing Arguments in Carson Roof Collapse Case against Harsco Corporation and Dyk, Inc. Will Begin Tomorrow in Compton - Business Wire
    On October 4, 2001, Martin Garcia was employed as a laborer by Kiewit Pacific and was among more than 30 people pouring concrete on the roof form of Tank No. 19 on the job site at the Joint Water Pollution Control Plant at 24102 South Figueroa in Carson, CA. He was standing on the plywood falsework supported by shoring almost 6 stories above the floor of the tank. At 8:30 AM that morning, after about 60-70% of the roof had been poured, the shoring gave way and the roof collapsed, causing more than 11 workers to fall 6 stories into the bottom of Tank No. 19 which was filled with rebar, metal and wet concrete. Mr. Garcia sustained injuries to his head and brain among other severe injuries.
