I'm So Glad

My Intel job has been over a couple of weeks. The place was fun but you cannot believe how dangerous it was. Today a friend called to say a guy was next to a forklift lifting a scissor lift to take it somewhere. The strap or rope broke. The scissor lift tumbled off of the forks on the giant forklift. It crushed the guy. He broke all of his ribs and broke his spine in two places. All kinds of cop cars, fire trucks and ambulances showed up for the emergency response. The guy was still alive at 5:00 but I can't help but think what horrors his family and coworkers are going through. How long will his recovery be if he lives? I don't know who it is yet, it might be one of my former co-workers.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that thirteen guys ran over there and lifted it off of the guy. I found a pic of the most common type out there.
