Sixteen Year Old Inducted as Carpenter before Seven Metre Fall

fall-coles

The sixteen year old boy who fell seven metres down a staircase void and suffered serious injuries in October, was inducted as a carpenter the day before the terrible accident occurred.

There have since been questions raised about the supervision of youth on the site and other sites.

The young man was working on the site as part of a program by Master Builders, helping students at risk of dropping out by putting them into trade apprenticeships.

The teen apparently fell from a stepladder down a staircase void which resulted in serious injuries including a crushed shoulder and damaged vertebrae, requiring a metal rod to be put into his back.

The program is currently on hold as WorkSafe investigate the incident.
