Officials responded to a call of a worker stuck underneath a forklift at the VAP Packaging Management building on 44 Lau Parkway at around 10:00 a.m. local time. A medical helicopter was hailed, but due to poor weather conditions, it was unable to assist with the manufacturing accident.
WHIO reports that two forklifts collided, causing one of the worker’s extremities to become pinned underneath one of the forklifts. A surgical team was brought in to assist with the man’s extrication.
The man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, reports WHIO. No further information is available on the man’s condition.
