    AXED WORKER IS CRUSHED UNDER TRUCK
    New York, NY -- After losing his job at a Brooklyn tile company, Nikolai Radchenko went back to his old workplace drunk and sat down beneath one of its trucks - then died when it ran over him, police and colleagues said yesterday. Radchenko, 48, was fired on Tuesday from his job as a shipper for Merola Tile, an East New York firm that makes and markets household ceramic tiles, colleagues said. Later that evening, he went back to Merola, at 819 Williams Ave. "He wanted his job back; that's why he returned," said Mike Demitri, who makes deliveries to the firm.
