A tragedy occurred in Erzurum, Turkey, when a 14-year-old boy was crushed by pallets being transported by his father using a forklift, resulting in his death.

The video footage captured the last moments of the child during the accident.

Alaettin A., one of the merchants at Yakutiye Demirciler Çarşısı, loaded laminate flooring from the store near his workplace onto the forklift. Ahmet Doğukan A., his 14-year-old son, was attempting to help him with transportation. Upon realizing that the pallets were tilting while making a turn, he swiftly ran to try to hold them, underestimating their weight.

His father and the people around him, witnessing the child falling to the ground and being crushed, immediately called the Emergency Response Teams at 112. However, he, unfortunately, succumbed to his injuries. The body of the 14-year-old was transported to the morgue of the Erzurum Forensic Medicine Institute for an autopsy. A security camera captured the moment of the incident.
