A southwest side Pepsico worker is shaken up but okay after a trailer he was unloading collapsed.

It happened at 5858 Decatur Boulevard on the southwest side in an industrial park.

Decatur Fire Chief Dale Henson says the man was operating a forklift when the front jacks of the trailer buckled.

The man stayed on the forklift strapped in until firefighters went into the trailer and walked him out.

The worker was not seriously injured and is expected to be okay.
