Serrano died in the emergency room at a nearby hospital.

Acme owner Mike Baker says the forks on the end loader weren't properly attached. He says he's contacted the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to investigate.

Baker says Serrano worked on-and-off at the repair shop for nine years.
