The teen was using a pallet jack to take the cabinet off a tractor-trailer, when it fell over and landed on him, Occupational Health and Safety spokesman Barrie Harrison said.

The worker's colleagues called paramedics and performed emergency first aid.

He was taken to hospital in Edmonton where he died from his injuries.

His name is being withheld by police until his family is notified.

The site was shut down for the day.  Occupational Health and Safety and RCMP are investigating.
