Sliding metal gate falls on worker as colleagues close garage

This is the shocking moment a metal gate fell on a worker as his colleagues closed the doorway.

Staff were closing the gate when it detached after being pulled too much in Bangkok, Thailand on January 2.

It then slipped and fell on him. Fortunately, he was able to move away despite being hit. He had some bruises and scratches but no one was reported seriously hurt.

Onlooker Tong Wongwich said: ‘It’s lucky her was not hurt more badly. The gate is very heavy. We have secured it now so it won’t happen again.’
