An unfortunate accident recently occurred on a Sydney construction site involving 2 workers.

The 2 men fell from a scaffolding on Monday morning and had to be rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The incident happened on a Meriton Street, Gladesville construction site.

It is believed the 2 men, in their twenties were being treated for lower leg injuries after falling less than 3 metres, proving how serious even falls from low levels can be.

Both men had to be rescued by paramedics, because they were difficult to access due to their location on scaffolding.

While one patient was able to lower himself down, the other was accessed at a lower level. See more at http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/two-men-fall-from-scaffolding-on-sydney-construction-site-20171121-gzpjul.html
