Ontario’s Ministry of Labour has been called to investigate after a man suffered life-threatening injuries while working at International Centre in Mississauga.

The incident occurred at around 8 a.m. at the popular multi-purpose facility at the corner of Airport and Derry roads.

Peel Regional Police Const. Bancroft Wright said it appears the male worker was “trapped” underneath a forklift.

Peel Region Paramedics transported the badly-injured man to a Toronto trauma centre, where he’s listed in critical condition.

The incident, which appears to have occurred near one of the loading docks, sent several paramedics and Peel police officers to the scene and caused quite a crowd of witnesses and onlookers.

“Looks like he was crushed,” said truck driver Ramdeep Singh, who was delivering at the International Centre when the tragic incident occurred.

The Ministry will be investigating to see if any workplace health and safety rules were violated.
