Farm worker electrocuted

A farm hand has died while operating a telehandler on a property at Gerang Gerung, near Dimboola, yesterday.


It is believed the 29-year-old was preparing to remove bales from a stack when a raised bale attachment made contact with overhead power lines.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death brings the workplace fatality toll to 61 for 2020, two more than at the same time last year.
