Yet another fall from a roof has taken place, this time at a NSW construction site in Berry.

The man was rushed to hospital after falling 3 metres when the railing or scaffolding underneath the man gave way. The man is in his twenties.

NSW Ambulance was called to the Huntingdale Park Road site where they discovered the man had fallen off a roof. He complained of shoulder and neck pain and there were fears he landed on his head in the fall. A spokesperson said he was bleeding but did not consider his injuries as serious.

The man is lucky his injuries weren’t worse given the height from which he fell. It’s important to remember that even falls from a relatively low height can result in serious injury or even death.

The man has been taken to Wollongong Hospital for further treatment.
