Abstract:
Michael, Jennifer, John and Nick all speak of losing their youth after suffering serious workplace accidents. Through dramatic recreations of these accidents and one-on-one discussions with the young people and their parents, Lost Youth tells four stories of lives forever altered. All were still in their teens when they were injured on the job. None were properly trained to deal with hazards and risks at their workplaces. Michael wears a prosthetic after his leg was crushed by sawmill machinery, Jennifer lost three fingers in a pizza dough maker, and John and Nick had their backs broken in forklift accidents. Their lives will never be the same. In emotional interviews, their parents speak of the need for all parents, employers, workers, and the community to make sure young people know how to be safe on the job.
