A worker in the Fraser Coast suffered a gruesome injury after falling from a ladder at a property in Maryborough.
The man was impaled on a fence after falling from the ladder with emergency crews having to be called in to free the injured man.
In addition to firefighters who attended to the man on the scene, he was also treated by ambulance paramedics before being transported to hospital with serious injuries.
Although we often think of ladder use as simple and easy, this incident proves how dangerous improper use of ladders can be.
