A construction worker narrowly escaped death on a Gosford building site after falling off a building and getting stuck between 2 walls.

Emergency crews were called to the site after reports that a man fell 4 meters off a scaffolding platform and landed between 2 retaining walls, in the process he injured his pelvis and leg.

Fire & Rescue NSW crews from Gosford and Kariong eventually freed the injured worker, who was wedged between two walls of a garden bed about 40cm apart. Sixteen rescue workers worked to free the man using rope, who was then taken via helicopter to Royal North Shore Hospital.
