39-year-old Auden Gamino was said to be removing bolts at the time. For reasons which are unavailable at this time, a crank somehow "became free of the brake." This caused the part to fall, striking Gamino. Gamino's injuries ultimately proved fatal. No other injuries were reported.

It can't be confirmed right now if the loose part was due to a mistake on the work site or some kind of manufacturing issue. However, authorities did list at least one alleged rule violation, for which they recommended there be a penalty of $10,151. No further information can be confirmed at this time.
