Here’s proof that even falls from low heights can be fatal.
James King, 79, died of injuries he received after falling from the second or third step of a ladder and striking his head on the floor at the Walmart in Russellville, AR, according to the Russellville Courier News. King was a greeter and assembler at the store.
He’d been trying to remove a box that contained a bicycle from a storage rack.
He was taken to the hospital where he later died.
OSHA investigated and found no violations.
