Plaintiff was working inside a coal chute. His job was to change the shafts & gears. Plaintiff was working on a ladder (using it as a platform) propped at an angle to keep chute door open. While moving down the ladder to view another area, the ladder gave way. The plaintiff dropped and his ankle got jammed between ladder and chute resulting in a tri-malleolar fracture.
