A worker trapped beneath a forklift at a construction site in the Bel Air area of Los Angeles died at the scene, authorities said April 15.
Firefighters were sent to 900 block of North Moraga Drive about 1 p.m., according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
“Despite the quick response of LAFD crews, including those specially trained, certified and equipped for urban search and rescue operations, the adult male worker—trapped beneath a toppled forklift that had been carrying steel rebar at a construction site—proved beyond medical help,'' Humphrey said Monday afternoon.
No other injuries were reported, Humphrey said.
Information was not immediately available on the man’s identity.
An investigation by Cal-OSHA was pending.
