Man seriously hurt by 300kg falling glass on Sydney worksite


A 67-year-old man has suffered head and shoulder injuries after 300kg of glass fell on him at a worksite in Sydney's south west.
The man is in a serious condition after the accident, NSW Ambulance bosses say.
Four crews were sent to the worksite at 2.30pm, and he was taken to Liverpool Hospital, an ambulance spokeswoman, said.
"Paramedics are always prepared for the worst, particularly when attending worksite incidents like this," Inspector Caitlyn Murphy, NSW Ambulance Duty Operations Manager, said.
"You never know what can go wrong at a worksite and how extensive the injuries will be.
"Paramedics did a great job getting there quickly and treating the man who had extensive injuries including serious head and shoulder injuries."
