A carpenter working at the Cathay Cargo project slipped from a 600mm high ledge and fell backwards
on to rebar. The rebar punctured the deceased in his lower back. He was assisted to a safe place by a
colleague, the site nurse administered first aid and an ambulance was called. He was taken to hospital
but on arrival his condition deteriorated and he died.
