A worker at a Derry Township concrete fabrication plant was airlifted to a Monroeville hospital Monday after he was pinned beneath the forklift he was operating.

Emergency crews were called to A.C. Miller Concrete Products Inc., 9558 Route 22, about 2 p.m. Monday to assist the man, according to dispatch reports.

The man had already been freed by other plant personnel when firefighters from New Alexandria and other fire departments arrived.

Malik said the man was taken by ground ambulance to Community United Presbyterian Church on Keystone Park Road in New Alexandria where he was taken by Lifeflight helicopter to Forbes Regional Hospital.

Officials at the pre-cast concrete plant, located between New Alexandria and Blairsville, did not return calls seeking comment.
