(Newser) – A Jersey City, NJ, warehouse worker somehow survived—and never even lost consciousness—after being buried by 1,500 pounds of pineapples yesterday. The 39-year-old was in stable condition last night, the Star-Ledger reports. Other than calling it an "industrial accident," the paper had no further details on what caused the pineapples to fall. It's not the only freak warehouse accident in Jersey of late.
