The floor of a northern New Jersey warehouse opened up on Monday, swallowing a forklift and the man who was running it. On top of that, the hole then filled with cooking oil and soy sauce that was stored in the warehouse.
Authorities say Danny Rodriguez of Bronx, N.Y., managed to escape serious injury as his forklift sank into the 6- to 10-foot deep hole in the East Rutherford warehouse rented by AM Express Freight, according to The Associated Press.
