Right now, the reason for the bolts breaking is unclear. It was not specified if the bolts were in disrepair, if they weren't right for the weight they were holding, or if some sort of manufacturing issue led to the failure. The OSHA reports did include one alleged rule violation, and they recommended there be a penalty of just over $10,000.

At this time, additional details about the factors surrounding the accident and the company allegedly involved are unclear.
