Forklift Extrication

Comments: 0

Engine 10 and Engine 5 responded to Airborne Express near Roanoke Regional Airport for a forklift accident. Engine 10 arrived to find a man pinned between the forklift and the load he was moving at about 2:45 am. The forklift was partially disassembled and the man was extricated from the wreckage. The forklift fell off of the loading dock when he drove through the wrong door opening. The truck he was supposed to be loading was in another bay. The man is expected to recover and his arm and hand which were caught in the wreckage seemed to be salvageable. The extrication took about 45 minutes.
