The forklift operator jumped off to help Employee #1 and his vehicle rolled forward, crushing Employee #1 between the lifting carriage and the trailer. He suffered multiple internal injuries and was transported to the hospital, where he later died. The coworker had left the industrial truck in gear and had forgotten to set the brake.
