Access Control a Forklift for Children
Who wants to talk about children getting hurt by a forklift? It’s sad, tragic and unacceptable for such a young life to be taken. Kids will want to be kids regardless of age and if something looks fun, like a forklift can be very tempting, then they will give it a try. Here are a few stories in the past two years where children’s lives came to a tragic end.
December 22, 2021 – 5 year old was crushed and killed as children were playing with a forklift in an Alabama warehouse. One child fell off the forklift and was crushed.
July 2022 – An 8 year old child was killed under the wheels of a reversing forklift. They were not sure how it occurred. Did the child fall or did the child run toward the forklift. Either way, the child is no longer with us.
February 2022 – A 15 year old boy was killed when him and his friends decided to go joyriding on a forklift. While doing donuts, the forklift overturned and crushed the teenager to his death.
