Forklift falls on man's hand
Saskatoon Fire and Protective Services crews helped rescue a man this morning after a forklift fell on his hand in the city's industrial area.
It happened around 10:30 a.m. while the 25-year-old was working at Vitran Express Canada.
"He was quite panicked at first, but MD (Ambulance) got in there and administered a few calming drugs," said Battalion Chief Glenn Ledray.
The man's hand was trapped for just under half an hour. Crews had to use air lifting bags to remove the 3,000 pound machine.
"We don't know whether he's going to lose his hand or not, but he did have feeling in his hand and he could move his fingers," said Ledray.
He said a workplace investigation will determine how the accident happened.
