A worker was killed by falling tiles when the forklift he was operating crashed into shelves in a warehouse in West Haverstraw, New York.
The crash occurred at the KJ Tiles Warehouse with no criminality involved, according to police quoted in the Rockland/Westchester Journal News.
An investigation is being conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to determine if workplace safety procedures were followed.
Carlos Ramirez-Hernandez, 52, was reported unconscious when found on the floor in the rear of the warehouse, surrounded by boxes of broken tiles.
A preliminary investigation determined Ramirez-Hernandez was operating the forklift when he apparently reversed into commercial metal shelving containing pallets of tiles.
He was pronounced dead on the scene.
