A 54-year-old worker was killed Tuesday morning after a forklift fell on his chest at a Maspeth job site, police said.

The incident happened on 56th Drive near 58th Place around 10:30 a.m., cops said.

The construction worker, identified by police as Min Baz Sik, of Flushing, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

According to police, another forklift  stopped working at the job site, and a second one was used to try to lift it. The functioning forklift then tipped over on the man.
