Sydney worker in hospital with head injury

A worker who suffered a serious head injury after being hit by a concrete pump at a western Sydney construction site is recovering in hospital. The 27-year-old man was working on the top floor of the unit block on Wrentmore Street at Fairfield when he was struck by the pump at about 8am on Monday, SafeWork NSW said.

Fire & Rescue crews aided paramedics in bringing the man down from the top of the five-storey block by using a cherry picker and transported him to Liverpool Hospital.

The man was hit while preparing a concrete pour, a SafeWork spokesman said.
