A 700-pound (317.5-kg) rotary base plate was being hoisted from a workboat to an offshore platform. The crane hook was attached to a chain that had been welded to the rotary base plate. The chain welded to the base plate parted and the base plate fell to the workboat. It struck and killed the skipper, who was standing on the boat deck.
