4 m factory fall kills worker

A man who fell around four metres at a factory in Clayton has been killed.

It is believed that the man in his 70s was working inside a makeshift cage attached to a forklift when the cage came off the forklift tines and fell to the ground.

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating the death, which occurred at a business on McNaughton Road.

The fatality brings the number of workplace deaths this year to 10, which is one more than at the same time last year.
