crane rescue

Cranes had to be used to rescue a worker on a Castle Hill site recently resulting in the northbound lanes of Old Northern Rd being closed.

A spokesperson from NSW Ambulance said the 34 year old was a air-conditioning installer from Yagoona who fell off a ladder, about one meter to the 3rd floor.

The man suffered a fractured and dislocated ankle as a result of the fall.

There have been a number of falls on construction sites recently, highlighting the importance of a greater emphasis on work from heights safety in the construction industry.
