Tuesday, April 8, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A five year old boy was killed this afternoon in the Spanish Lookout community in the Cayo district when he was run over by a forklift.

The victim has been identified as Kenton Kornelson.

Preliminary information says that Kornelson and another small child were riding their bicycles in an area near the Reimer’s Service Station on Center Road in Spanish Lookout around 1:30 pm today when the incident happened.

Forklift operator Elias Jacobs, 22, was in the process of moving tires from one place to another, when the boys reportedly climbed up on the forklift, one on the front of the heavy machine and the other sitting near to Jacobs.

Exactly what transpired next is not yet known, but a loud scream was heard as the boy was crushed by the forklift.

Jacobs soon learned that it was the son of his employer that had been crushed by the forklift he was driving. Kenton Kornelson was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital in Belmopan but he was dead on arrival.

Police in San Ignacio are in the process of taking statements from Elias Jacobs and other persons who were in the area at the time of the incident and it is expected that a Notice of Intended Prosecution will be served on Jacobs.

Police investigations continue.
