Man falls 10 metres from roof

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.
