At least they did the right thing and didn't try to get out of the cab when the shelves started coming down.

Is that really a proper build for stock shelves in a warehouse? Do they not design them to give way in case of situations like this?

I've been in a few smaller warehouses and the shelves seemed way to solid to fall over.

Once I was in a carpet wear house and my friends dad ran one of the forklifts into the shelf. Didn't even shake.

It does seem like the shelf should of been attached to the wall, or maybe wider to balance out how tall it was.

Once you buckle one of the legs, the whole rack system is compromised. They are meant for vertical load and not horizontal forces.
They are not attached to walls because any rack failure could compromise the integrity of the entire building.

That makes sense, guess they assume people won't drive a forklift into them.

i help run a warehouse and i can tell you that the racks in ours will stop the forklift dead in its tracks if you run into it. They must not have had the legs anchored or the shields in front of the legs attached.
