You did this. Your manager is coming in 3 seconds. What do you do?

If nobody was hurt or killed, if you stay and work hard helping to clean it up you may keep your job but I doubt it. I work in a warehouse like this. One time a guy received a whole load of Taco Bell product and input the wrong expiration date. It expired and cost the company about $50k, and somehow he's still there.

There's no escape. Give up. It's over after that.

I would just grab a beer from the fridge, kick back in a chair, and wait until the boss shows up.
May as well go out in style.

I saw a fork lift operator do the equivalent at 1 of the Coor's Beer Golden, Colorado warehouses about 30 years ago. I arrived 1 day to deliver 264K empty 12-oz aluminum cans fresh from a Missouri factory. That's what a 53-footer will hold. The cans sat on soft cardboard pallet-equivalents in stacks wrapped in shrink wrap from back door to deck. Guy at the warehouse was unloading my rig 2 stacks at a time and spotting the unload nearby. About that time a forklift came over grabbed my accumulation (264 000 cans) stacked at least 20' high and grabbed another group stacked equally high making the total well over 500K cans in 1 haul.

Well, whether the operator was showing off or not he didn't make it to the intended destination in that voluminous warehouse. About midway something happened and all those cans broke from their shrinkwrapped moorings and came crashing down in 1 big heap. What a noise, what a mess. Union shop: he still had a job to my knowledge.

Cans, being unclean now, were compacted, shipped to a contract scrapper for recycling.

Your scenario: as others have posted the structural integrity of that stack system was defective. There is no obvious way 1 person could amass that much damage (barring flying an airplane thru there) through a job-related snafu. Just describe in detail what happened, what you saw. If the manager's worth a damn (s)he'll assess the damage, situation, take control using mini-disaster protocols warehousing organizations follow. If unharmed by the incident you'll likely have to take an on spot drug test, fill out some reports, attend a few interviews with the suits, insurance company investigators.

Run away for a bit, and then come back later and the boss that I had nothing to do with it .

If you're a woman, just accuse the manager of rape and jump onto the #MeToo bandwagon.
