An employee at Kanye's office was airlifted to a hospital Friday after a heavy piece of machinery fell on his foot.
It looks like an employees at Kanye West’s company got injured badly Friday when he was trying to move a heavy piece of machinery. TMZ reports that the man even had to be airlifted to the hospital because it was so bad.
Sources at the Calabasas Tech Center, where Kanye’s office is located, told the news outlet that the man was transporting a heavy piece of machinery Friday, possibly used for making Kanye's Yeezy shoes, when it fell over and landed on his foot. The man reportedly let out a loud scream and was stuck under the equipment for several minutes, before it took at least 7 people to lift it off his foot.
Police say they responded to the incident around 5 PM and could confirm that the people did indeed lift the machine off the guy when they arrived, but his injury was so bad it required airlift transportation for emergency medical care.
The extent of his injury is unclear at this time, but it’s definitely not good. Looking ahead into the future, this incident has lawsuit written all over it, and Kanye’s name could be involved.
