A worker of a bulk grain handling firm has sustained serious injuries at a grain terminal in northern New South Wales.
Emergency crews quickly responded to the scene, and took the man to a Newcastle hospital by helicopter.
“A 56-year-old Tamworth man had fallen some five metres and he suffered head and shoulder injuries and has been flown to John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle in a serious condition,” Barry Waltonhe of the region’s rescue helicopter confirmed.
An internal investigation has been initiated by the company.
