BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) -- A worker injured after nearly 5,000 pounds of glass and pallet crashed onto him last week in Boise is struggling to hold on to life.
"It doesn't look good," Mary, the man's girlfriend of 17 years, told KBOI 2News Monday morning.
Mary, who asked KBOI not to reveal the worker's name because she's still trying to contact family members about the accident, said her significant other is struggling to survive.
"We are trying our best to get him back, she said. "But he's fighting."
The accident occurred at U.S. Mirror and Glass on the 500 block of W. McGregor in Boise, which is off Federal Way early Wednesday evening.
Emergency crews first on scene worked to uncover the man, who was trapped underneath the mirrors. The pallet weighed an estimated 5,000 pounds. When rescuers were able to uncover the man, who's in his 50s, he was found unresponsive.
"At this time it appears to be a tragic accident," Boise Police said in a news release.
Mary said her boyfriend's condition has left her physically and emotionally devastated. Even the family dog, she says, has been affected.
"He's waiting for him to come home," she said. "But he doesn't."
Mary said employees at U.S. Mirror and Glass have been very supportive over the last few days.
"They are there for me no matter what," she said. "We're all a family."
Mary said she appreciates everyone in the community who has reached out to help.
"We just need prayers," she said.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating the accident.
