A man embarking on home renovations has been rushed to the Gold Coast Hospital over the weekend, after falling from a ladder.
The man was working on a house in NSW Mid North Coast when the accident occured. He fell from the ladder before being impaled by star picket.
The man is lucky to be alive after being taken to hospital in a serious condition on Sunday.
Home owners and others doing renovations should pay particular attention to work from height and ladder safety because this is a common cause of injury and death.
