According to WTVF-TV, an employee at a Nashville fence company was killed while he was trying to buy a pipe at a wholesale supply business on January 24.

The station reported that 36-year-old Omar Badillo had just purchased piping at Capitol Wholesale Fence Company on 1200 Lebanon Pike, when the pipes began to shift after a forklift loaded them, striking him in the head.

Badillo reportedly worked at Martinez Fence Company. The pipes he was working with were reportedly 21-feet in length. According to WTVF, emergency medical officials were called in to transport Badillo to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, but he was declared dead on arrival.

The death remains under investigation, but officials have said that it appears to be an accident.
