Fall claims the 23rd Victorian life of 2020

A self-employed builder died after falling approximately three metres on 4 May 2020 at a residential property at Mead, near Kerang in Victoria. WorkSafe Victoria is investigating; however, it is believed that the 53-year-old was working on the roof of an extension when the incident took place. The death marked the 23rd workplace fatality in the state for 2020.
