I'm reminded of a gif out there, too long to stick on fark.

A forklift starts to tip forward, a person runs up and jumps on to the back, hanging by the hands as the load falls off the forks, the jolt shedding the person who attempts to roll away but is run over by the forklift as it rebounds from the dropped load. All in attendance scurry about while the person is trapped beneath the forklift. The driver attempts to drive forward off the person who merely rolls beneath the thing, being forced along by the rear wheels.

There was no snow.

They took the Hershey Highway to completely ruin his day.

A man was taken to the hospital after being run over by a garbage truck in Schuylkill County.

What do you expect when you live in a county named as it is.

No, subby. That takes no skill. That is the expected outcome when you jump out or off of a moving vehicle.

So garbage man has work related injury in dangerous conditions...

When I was a kid there was a spot where the freight trains went by the complex I lived in that had a banking on one side close enough to jump onto the trains from. One kid missed and went down between the box cars and lost a foot under a wheel.

Novel.

Usually people think they can stop a forklift with their foot.

\they can't

How soon can we get a graphic "Skier run over by trash truck?"  Five minutes?  Dang.  This has to go out on the internet right away.

He was taken to Hershey Medical Center. There is no word on his condition

His condition was later upgraded to 'coated in chocolate" That's what they do with all the nuts at the Hershey.

Oh yea? Well I got a cigarette burn on my arm for spilling paint in the garage.

Heard of a workplace accident where an oil truck driver (think North East corridor/Atlantic Canada), slipped down a snow back after filling a customers tank, and was caught in the PTO shaft.  Freak accident.

The garbage truck incident sounds a little like horseplay, which if true, could mean no Workers Comp for you buddy.
 
2017-03-20 02:37:53 PM  
No, I'm thinking it takes the polar opposite of skill to do that. A whole lot of unskill. Like epic level unskill.

If he had no other way to get around, I applaud his bootstrappiness. His planning and knowledge of conditions that should negate a landing were sadly lacking.

Bith Set Me Up: Your move, Florida Man.


He beat this a decade ago, Jacksonville, Fl a guy pulls up to a two track crossing as the arms came down, he looks east and sees the train on the near track coming but still a hundred or so yards away so he guns it around the arms just in time for the train on the farside track to smash into him right before the nearside train makes him the meat in a two train sandwich, as both trains were going 40+ MPH the....debris... was scattered over a 600 yard swath, yes Florida man got hit by two trains at once....

The phrase 'meat explosion' comes to mind.
