Young dad fighting for his life following forklift incident at Tyrone business


A Tyrone dad is fighting for his life at Belfast’s Royal Victoria Hospital following a forklift-related incident at a business in the Dungannon area.

It is understood the young man was working in a cage attached to the forklift, when it fell to the ground, seriously injuring him last Monday.

A spokesperson for the Belfast Health Trust said he remains in a critical condition in the intensive care unit at RVH.

Northern Ireland’s Health and Safety Executive is aware of the incident, and is investigating.

A statement said: “The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) has been made aware of an incident at a workplace in the Dungannon area and is currently investigating.”
