More scissor lift accidents

Ironically after last week’s post, today we get more bad news on scissor lift accidents with two fatalities reported.

One occurred in Western Australia where a 44 year old man was crushed by a scissor lift at a cement plant in a naval base.  No further details are available.

The second occurred at a business in Phoenix, Arizona.  An air conditioning contractor was working on a scissor lift inside the refrigerator section of the facility when the accident occurred.  Initial reports state that his clothing got caught in the controls, lifting and crushing him.
