A man was killed and another injured after becoming trapped beneath landfill in a freak workplace accident.
Co-workers reportedly dug through tonnes of debris with their bare hands in their efforts to free the 2 men.
One man, in his thirties was rescued after approximately 10 minutes and was airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition with suspected shoulder and abdominal injuries.
The other man who was trapped 2 metres deeper, took an additional 15 minutes to be reached but had already passed away.
It is believed the 2 men were hit by a tipper and covered in mounds of waste, including white goods and furniture. According to Fire and Rescue New South Wales, the men were crushed by multiple tonnes of rubbish.
