Worker Seriously Injured By Heavy Equipment Accident

Comments Off

According to this article at silive.com, a worker at a Staten Island construction site was injured Monday night after he fell off of a front-end loader and was crushed by one of the wheels.

The victim was taken to Richmond University Medical Center and remains in critical condition at the time of this writing. The accident is still pending investigation.

According to reports, the man attempted to board the front-end loader as it was still moving and then slipped on the machine’s ladder,  landing beneath one of the massive wheels. It’s worth noting that this particular piece of equipment weighs an astounding 30,000 lbs. It is a miracle that this gentlemen has survived an accident like this. We hope that he makes a full recovery.
