]A man doing some maintenance work at a commercial business in Sylmar suffered serious injuries Saturday when he was crushed by a small, yet heavy ramp that somehow landed on top of him.

Firefighters and paramedics were dispatched at 12:35 p.m. to North American Machinery Movers at 12965 San Fernando Road and rushed the man to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Humphrey said the loading ramp was at the back of a low boy trailer, when the ramp somehow flipped and landed on the man.
