A man is dead Friday afternoon after he was crushed under a stack of wood that fell from his forklift as he was working at AA Container company.

Minneapolis police said it happened at about 4 p.m. on the 4600 block of Humboldt Avenue in Minneapolis.

The man was staking bundles of a wood product at the company when he apparently got off his fork truck. That's when the stack fell and crushed him.

Police said they are unable to provide a name for the man at this time.
