Several, all used and abused.
Any idea what was on those shelves? They sure did collapse quickly for such a slight hit by the forklift. I'm guessing that they where extremely overloaded!!!!

Years ago I had a friend (r.i.p.) who's brother was moving something heavy with his fork lift, so heavy it tipped forward. The friend jumped on the back to counterbalance it. Then the load slid off.
It was a see-saw effect and the guy was flipped up in the air at an arc, landing on his head.

That is amazing! I had to laugh, but I hope nobody got hurt. Yikes!

Hope his ROPS held up. Looked like he got hit hard from the side. I'm guessing considerable injury.

Lots of weight coming down. Look at how forcefully the forklift was shoved to the left.

Yep. Wouldn't be surprised if the operator wasn't killed in that one. The product shoved that forklift sideways like it was a feather. And you know they weigh thousands of pounds.
