Seven workers fall through the roof of a factory in Sydney’s west and are rushed to the hospital in very bad shape.
After falling through the roof of a factory cool room in Sydney’s western suburbs, seven men were taken to the hospital.
At an industrial complex in Cavasinni Place, Wetherill Park, all seven workers were treated at the scene and are still in a very bad way.
A spokesperson for NSW Fire and Rescue said that the workers fell through the roof on Tuesday afternoon and landed on equipment.
Rescue firefighters and paramedics worked together to “save” the workers.
Six ambulances from NSW rushed to the scene, and three trucks and other vehicles from Fire and Rescue NSW were also there.
“At this point, we don’t know how bad the injuries are,” a source said, but all of them are thought to be serious.
A NSW Police statement said, “The men were treated by paramedics and taken to Liverpool and Westmead Hospitals, all in serious condition.”
Three of the men are thought to be hurt worse than the others, but the exact nature of their injuries has not been made public yet.
The NSW Ambulance Service confirmed that the men had “various injuries.”
A medical team with special training was also there.
A number of emergency services, like the NSW Police, were also at the factory.
The accident happened around 2:20 on Tuesday. No one knows what caused it yet.
SafeWork NSW knows about it.
