Roof work can be extremely risky, especially when done without the necessary controls in place. A man was recently killed when he fell through a roof which he was trying to demolish a concrete water tank.
The man had been working at his farm in Wherrol Flat, northwest of Taree when the accident took place.
The man fell into the tank and was pinned under the water by the concrete. Paramedics weren’t able to resuscitate the man who was already dead when they had arrived at the scene.
