Worker crushed to death

A man has died after he was crushed while unloading a shipping container in Melbourne. The man, aged in his 40s, is believed to have been unloading stone slabs at the time of the accident. It occurred at a Campbellfield business just after 10am on Thursday.

Emergency services attempted to free the man, who is yet to be identified, but he died at the scene. A second man was taken to hospital and is under observation.

Worksafe is investigating and police are preparing a report for the coroner.

A Metropolitan Fire Brigade spokesman said about 25 firefighters responded to the scene, including specialist teams.

The death on Thursday brings the number of workplace fatalities this year to seven, Worksafe said.
