A construction worker has been severely injured after being crushed by a twenty five tonne machine that steamrolled over him! Unbelievably though, he survived!
Initially, the machine began to crush the workers left foot. Then, it continued up his body inching up to his chest. By this point, the worker was coughing up blood. Emergency services were consequently called to the scene and firefighters surrounded the injured worker, rushing him to hospital. He was in a very critical condition with several mutilated body parts.
Once at the hospital, the trauma doctor explained to his parents: “it doesn’t look good. I don’t think he’s going to make it.” Therefore, he was rushed to another hospital where a surgeon and his team were ready to operate. With six broken ribs, critical liver damage and severed ligaments and arteries, it wasn’t looking good.
Unbelievably though, after the surgery, the worker’s prospects were looking much more promising. The surgeon stated “the surgery could not have gone better.” He would live. After three months of rehabilitation, the construction worker had made amazing progress!
Unfortunately though, this is not the first time accidents like this have taken place on site. And it probably won’t be the last.
