Following an ordeal more than 2 hours a long, a worker on a Ballarat construction site was eventually freed using an excavator, after he was buried by dirt in a trench collapse.
The young man, 20 years of age, was working alongside a colleague who died on the scene of the collapse.
The 2 men were discovered by co-workers after the more than six metre long trench collapsed at the Melbourne site, burying both workers about waist-deep.
The 20 year old worker was flown to Royal Melbourne Hospital with serious injuries where he was placed in an induced coma. He underwent 4 emergency surgeries but unfortunately did not survive, he died a few days later.
