Beware when conducting mechanical repairs on machinery and ensure workers safety even when machinery is not in use. An fatal incident has occurred in southern Queensland involving a bobcat which was undergoing repairs.
Reports say a man was crushed by a bobcat which he was working on at the time. The man, believed to be in his sixties was doing mechanical work on the bobcat when it fell from a ramp and landed on him, fatally injuring him.
The man sustained serious chest and abdominal injuries. Paramedics treated the man on the scene and then rushed him to Toowoomba Base Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short while later.
