Serious Fall at Waratah Bay
WORKSAFE is investigating an accident at Waratah Bay in which a painter was thrown from a cherry picker and received spinal injuries.
The incident occurred at about 9am last Friday, when the 41-year-old Traralgon man, subcontracted to paint a house in Iluka Court, was in the bucket of a cherry picker, working on the second storey. The cherry picker was mounted on a trailer, apparently on uneven ground. It toppled over and the painter was thrown from the bucket. He was found by a neighbour some minutes later.
An ambulance was called and the man was airlifted to The Alfred Hospital in Melbourne with spinal injuries. Police from Foster also attended the accident scene.
A 19-YEAR-OLD man from Yanakie received a fine of $239 and three demerit points when he was intercepted driving above the speed limit on the Prom Road at Foster on Sunday evening.
