Forklift Operator Crushed by His Own Forklift
A forklift operator was crushed when he left his seat to look into the bin that he had just picked up. He didn’t turn off the forklift and as a result, his foot hit the controls and the mast tilt moved crushing him between the mast and the overhead guard. Unfortunately, the operator died in the forklift accident. The workers and paramedics did all they could to save his life.
