Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 201344405Event: 06/06/2007Employee Is Struck By Falling Hay Rack, Later Dies
At approximately 9:10 a.m. on June 6, 2007, an employee and a coworker were preparing to assemble an H and S HD II hay rack. Both were laying out the parts to begin assembly. The coworker was using a Manitou M50 vertical mast forklift to lay out the 2,000 lbs main frame of the hay rack, when the main frame of the hay rack fell off the forks of the forklift and struck the employee in the head and then landed on coworker pinning him to the ground. Fellow coworkers rushed to the coworker and removed the frame from him. Emergency help was called immediately. The ambulance arrived and transported the employee to the Rawlins County Health Center approximately half a mile away, where he was initially treated. Life Flight was called from Denver, Colorado to transport him to a larger hospital with more diagnostic capabilities for further evaluation; he was being prepared for flight when he died from internal injuries at approximately 10:56 a.m. The coworker sustained no injuries.
