    I've watched this a couple times... Looks like he barley touches it.

    Wow! Yeah, not much of a hit. Hard to tell but looks like a brush against it. Those racks must have been at their absolute limit for weight. Hope everyone made it out ok. Do i hear large lawsuit settlements?

    Saw something like that happen in Cookeville, TN in the late 90's. I was waiting to deliver and all the sudden the end of the warehouse exploded outwards. It was a refrigerated warehouse and all the trucks waiting to unload were sent to various warehouses in Knoxville and Nashville to unload.

    The comments claim it was a different incident where the forklift operator was dug out hours later.

    Nope it was this one. There’s a link with the video clip from the news report in England. He was dug out and unijured
