Fatal Boom Loading

11/26/14

 Natal, Brazil

A man died earlier this month in Natal, Brazil, after a boom lift slipped off the side of a trailer, while loading it.

Details on the incident are limited, however it appears Joaquim Carneiro Bastos Neto, 48, was loading the JLG boom lift on to a truck at the yard of a rental company when it slipped off the side. It is not known whether Neto was struck by the falling boom lift or whether he was thrown from the basket. He was declared dead at the scene.
