Manhattan A construction worker died Wednesday after falling from a forklift at a Kansas State University construction site.
A second worker also fell, according to Troy Lane, spokesman for the Kansas State police, but there was no indication he was seriously injured.
Steven E. Darveaux, of Winchester, and Timothy W. Hanes, of Meriden, got into a forklift box at an apartment complex construction site Wednesday evening to be lowered with tools to ground level, according to a news release from the university.
The side of the box began to tip and both men fell from the box. The forklift box then fell on Darveaux.
Emergency medical workers were unable to revive Darveaux at the scene.
Both men were employed by a subcontractor of McPherson Construction Co.
