Loren Schauers, from Montana USA, bravely shared the picture online which shows the devastating aftermath after he fell 50ft off a bridge and was crushed by a forklift Man chopped in half by forklift shares horrifying picture of moment it fell on him

A builder who was cut in half by a forklift has shared heartbreaking pictures of the moment the machine landed on him. Loren Schauers, now 21, lost three limbs and has faced a long road to recovery since he was crushed by the truck.

The labourer said he still feels phantom pain from missing limbs three years after the tragedy which took place in September 2019. Loren made the brave decision to let doctors to perform a hemicorperectomy and amputate everything below his waist to save his life.

Now he has shared photos of the fateful moment the forklift almost killed him, reports the Daily Star. Pictures show the carnage after Loren got too close to the edge of a bridge due to traffic. He was working in the forklift when he fell 50ft, severing his arm and crushed his lower body.

“If you look closely in the second photo, you can see me still pinned under the forklift,” he said on Instagram.

“Last photo is exactly what type it was I’m sure of.”

Loren, from Great Falls in Montana, USA, has been documenting his road to recovery over the last three years.

Since the accident, he has taken to his new life admirably well and shares intimate details of his experience with weekly vlogs on YouTube.

His devoted wife Sabia Reiche, 23, who shares the account, has stayed by his side through all his health problems and helps him perform many daily tasks.

Due to his mobility issues, Loren needs help changing his colostomy bags and showering.

Responding to personal queries about how the couple have sex on a Q&A, Loren’s wife Sabia said the question was ‘disrespectful’.

“A question we get repeatedly is how do we have sex and how do we become intimate,” she said.

“That is a very personal question that we are never going to answer or allude to as it’s very disrespectful.

“You wouldn’t ask a random couple on the street how they have sex and just because our life circumstances are different, it doesn’t give people the right to ask.”

Loren had told his family to keep him alive even if he was just a “head on a plate” following the accident.

His family were left with the devastating decision of whether to ask doctors to save him.

But when the construction worker was later able to speak for himself, he looked doctors “dead in the eye” and asked for a lifesaving op.

For the past three years, he has been living in Montana with the help of his wife Sabia.
