A labourer has died after he fell from a ladder at a residential property in Bendigo on Friday last week (30/11/18).

It is believed the 21-year-old man was on a ladder placed against the outside of a single-storey property in the suburb of Kennington when the incident occurred at about 12.30 pm. He died in hospital later that day.
