Mast Boom Incident

11/20/14

Enfield district of Redditch, Worcestershire, UK

A mast boom was reported to have overturned in a supermarket car park in the UK yesterday injuring a man. The true cause looks to have been unrelated to the machine itself.

The incident occurred in the Enfield district of Redditch, Worcestershire, in the car park of a supermarket that is closed for refurbishment.

Details are minimal, all we know for certain, is that the lift was stowed and ended up on its back. It looks as though the machine was being carried by a telehandler at the time and it fell off the forks- rather than having overturned.
