A plumber and father of two has been killed after falling into a collapsed trench at a building site in Sydney’s north-west, the ABC reports.

Workers at the West Pennant Hills Sports Club desperately tried to dig the 47-year-old man out of the three-metre trench just after midday, but he died at the scene.

The CFMEU said four workers had died in New South Wales in the past fortnight.

Police and Workcover are investigating the incident.
