Almost happened to me a week and a half ago up in La Crosse. Was live unloading and opened the passenger side door first to see two pallets that were ready to topple. The driver side door was still closed and locked and holding the pallets up in place to keep them from toppling. The two pallets had to be broken down first,keeping the driver side door closed before we could open up the driver side door to unload the rest of the product!
We had a full load of steel 15”and 16” utility/ travel trailer wheels come in about 15 years ago. All stacked in individual boxes. And had to be hand stacked on pallets to unload. Driver opened door and one slid down and busted his noggin wide open and knocked him out cold. We thought he was dead. He spent a couple days in the hospital.
1 BEST thing about Skateboards: One Can SEE The Load.

Dry Vans/Reefers/Containers: ALWAYS open the Right Door while reverse stepping (after the bloody BOLT seal is eliminated) and being AWARE of thy environment in case one need move QUICKLIER or be injured from incompetence then claim "it wasn't my fault"!
