Worker crushed unloading light towers marks 25th Vic death

A Victorian transport worker has died after he was crushed unloading steel light tower segments from a semitrailer at Altona North on Friday 5 June.

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

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating.

The death brings the state’s workplace fatalities toll to 25 for 2020.
