Ballarat Trench Collapse – Two Killed

The dangers of working in trenches on construction sites has once again come into the spotlight after two workers have passed away following a trench collapse incident at a Ballarat construction site.

A man working in the trench died on the scene.

One worker, a 20 year old man was trapped for 2 hours, covered up to his waist in dirt in the trench about 6 metres deep.

His co-workers tried to free him using tools and their hands but eventually an excavator had to be used to free the man who was then transported to hospital with serious injuries. Unfortunately he died in hospital.
