A man was crushed to death on a north Queensland site recently after a concrete pylon fell.
The man was killed instantly when the pylon, which weighed an estimated 17 tonnes, fell on him at the Townsville concrete works.
The 53 year old man was strapping one of the pylons so it could be moved by a crane when another fell from a stacked set and crushed him.
The scene was described by all present as horrific.
An investigation has been launched but it could take weeks before we have any answers as to why this horrific incident occurred.
