A man has survived falling as high as 10 metres from aluminium roofing at a worksite in south-west Sydney.
Emergency services were called to the construction site on Helles Avenue in Moorebank just after 8am today.
Four NSW ambulance crews and a specialist medical team were sent.
They treated the 49-year-old man for serious leg injuries. Both of his legs are believed to have been fractured in the fall.
He has been taken to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition.
NSW Ambulance’s Inspector Craig Watkins said the man was “seriously lucky” not to have been more seriously injured.
“Incidents at a worksite can be extremely complex and this shows just how quickly a situation can change,” he said.
