Work at a construction site in Manhattan, Kansas turned deadly on Wednesday as one person was killed and another worker injured.

The accidents occured as Steven E. Darveaux, of Winchester, and Timothy W. Hanes, of Meriden, got into a forklift box at a Kansas State University apartment complex construction site. After entering, the side of the box started to tip, causing both men to fall out and to the ground. Darveaux was then killed with the box fell ontop of him.

Emergency services were immediately called and attended to both men at the scene. Darveaux could not be revived and Hanes was treated for injuries.

Both men were employed by a subcontractor of McPherson Construction Company.
