A man was seriously injured today after the suspended platform he was working from plummeted to the ground, possibly striking a boom lift on the way down.
The local fire department was also called in to rescue two men – also working on the building – from a boom lift – a Gene S-125 – using a fire ladder. Details are scant at this stage, but it seems that two men were working from the suspended scaffold, one managed to scramble through a window , while the other, aged 46, fell over 20 meters with the swing stage platform, and may have landed on a parked car. He was rushed to hospital with life threatening injuries. We will update this item when we learn more about what actually happened.
