New South Wales, Australia
Police say the accident happened at the Kayuga mine when a trailer, which was being lifted by a crane, fell and hit a rigger on the head.
The owners of the mine, Anglo Coal, have issued a statement expressing their sympathy to the man’s family.
NSW police spokesman Senior Constable Tony Tamplin says the accident happened as a crane attempted to lift a trailer on the mine site.
“Exactly what happened is uncertain from there – either the chain has broken or it’s slipped off the trailer,” he said.
