An elderly man is in critical condition after falling about 3 metres while working in a shed in Gympie.

The man was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition after the fall.

The man, in his 80s was working in the shed when he slipped and fell, causing serious head injuries.

He was stabilised on the scene and then airlifted to Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a critical condition.

Let’s ensure measures are taken to ensure work from height safety, even when the perceived risk doesn’t seem that serious. This incident is a reminder that even falls from a relatively low height can have serious consequences.
