One person is dead following an industrial incident south of Guelph.
Crews were called to Voisin Equipment Rental on Winer Road near Aberfoyle shortly after 9 a.m. Monday in response to a man trapped under a forklift.
The victim, a 47-year-old Acton resident was taken to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
Officials say the man was using the forklift to load other equipment onto the trailer when it fell off the truck and onto the worker, who was employed by an Acton-based trucking company.
His name has not been released.
The Ministry of Labour continues to investigate.
