Tampa, Florida-- Sky 10 hovered over a tragic industrial accident Tuesday afternoon. Under the yellow tarp seen in footage was the body of 25-year old Eric Joseph Kanganis, crushed when a massive roll of steel fell on top of him.
According to police, Kanganis was standing on the tines of a forklift next to a flatbed truck, preparing to unload the rolls of steel when the accident happened.
"In the process of trying to unload these rolls of steel, he cut a band- a strapping that was holding them together- and when he cut that band, one of the rolls fell and pinned him against the forklift," said Pinellas Park Police Spokesman Capt. Sanfield Forseth,
Minutes after the accident, workers at USP Structural Connectors were visibly shaken at the sight of the tragedy.
Kanganis was a three-year employee of the company, and was said to be very well-liked.
