The article says it was just a few quartz that fell on him.

Deputies say approximately 10 sheets of quartz contained in the pallet fell on him and pinned him between the sheets and another pallet.

Deputies say the each sheet weighed approximately 1,000 pounds for a total of 10,000 pounds.

Alvarez was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment. Deputies described his injuries as non-life threatening.
