A worker recently had to be rescued from a 2 metre deep pit which he fell into on a building site in Melbourne’s north-east.
The man, believed to be 40 years old, was stuck in the pit for about an hour as firefighters worked to get the man out.
The man was rescued eventually at 1:15pm and paramedics assessed him at the site in Mernda at Regent Street.
The man was stuck 2 metres below ground level. WorkSafe Victoria also visited the site.
