Horror at a Sydney worksite as a tradie is left in a critical condition after being struck in the FACE with metal
A tradesman is in a critical condition after a worksite accident in Sydney’s north-west.
Emergency services were called to a construction site in Carlingford at 12.15pm following reports a gas bottle had exploded.
However, upon arrival NSW Ambulance realised a man had been hit in the face with metal, news.com.au reported.
A 44-year-old man is being treated for significant facial injuries.
He is in a critical condition at Westmead Hospital.
‘Incidents at worksite can be extremely complex and it shows just how quickly any situation can change,’ NSW Ambulance Duty Operation Manager Jennine Kiely said.
‘Bystanders did a great job coming to the man’s aid.
‘Paramedics were able to work together with other emergency services under these tense conditions to do everything they can for the patient.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Safe Work NSW for comment.
