Worker crushed while unloading light towers

A transport worker has died after he was crushed while unloading steel light tower segments from a semi-trailer at Altona North on Friday afternoon.


It is believed the 56-year-old was preparing to remove some of the 10-12 metre long segments, when the load shifted and two fell on him.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death brings the number of workplace fatalities to 25 for 2020.
