A worker has died after he fell into a water-filled trench in Perth.

The man was working at a construction site in Mosman Park when he fell into a trench and became trapped.

The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon.

His colleagues tried to get into the water to pull him out before calling emergency services at about 2.40pm.

It took emergency services more than six hours to retrieve his body.

WorkSafe is investigating the incident.

Earlier this week, a tree lopper, aged in his 40s, died after he was struck by a falling tree branch in Waroona.
