On July 19, 2011, Employee #1 drove for 30 minutes, in an air conditioned vehicle, to a private farm to change a tractor tire.

The employer sent two additional employees to the site, where they found Employee #1 lying on the ground. They took Employee #1 to the hospital. At 7:00 p.m. on the same day, the company president was notified that Employee #1 had died.
