Death by Oven (but not what you’re thinking)

Near West Palm Beach this week a man was killed by an oven.

Not in an oven, by a 3,000 pound tortilla oven when it fell from the fork lift as it was being hoisted into a delivery truck.  The victim was one of three men assisting in the move and was pinned under it as it fell.

Because of its pure size and weight co-workers were helpless in moving the oven.  Firefighters had to use inflatable bags to lift the giant oven to pull the man’s body from underneath.

The oven had been the subject of a bidding war as it was being sold off from a grocery store that had gone out of business
