Man catapulted from platform

11. August 2017 | Comments (0)

A man is critically ill tonight after he was catapulted from a boom lift this mornign after a car ploughed into the platform on Malcolm Road, Braeside, on the south east side of Melbourne in Australia.

The man, 35, was - we understand - driving the Grove MZ 86J trhough the gate to the premises of rental company United Access, in order to load it onto a truck parked in the street at around 5:30 am, when the car struck the basket causing him to be thrown out of the basket. He sustained serious head injuries after hitting the ground and was rushed to hospital. We have no idea if he was wearing a harness or not, or if he was, whether the lanyard was short enough, given that the platform was relively close to the ground at the time.

UPDATE

We have now learnt that the man died from his injuries, passing away in hospital on September 2nd.
