Forklift Accident Video - Lucky escape for driver

Although this video is not hugely 'dramatic', it illustrates perfectly just how vulnerable a forklift is when fully extended. You can also see that once momentum has taken hold of the tipping forklift, the driver is flung violently into the platform from which he his lifting from.

This could easily have resulted in an amputation, or death by crushing. Stay safety everyone. . . don't become complacent around the forklifts in your workplace.
