A crane will be needed to remove the body of a man who died in a scaffolding accident at a school in western Sydney on Friday morning, police said.
A man working as a mason was fatally injured in a fall of scaffolding and concrete at Fort Street High in Petersham just before 11:30 am.
Paramedics arrived at the scene but were unable to do anything to save the man.
New South Wales Fire and Rescue Superintendent Adam Dewberry said police will begin the difficult task of removing the man’s body from the site where it is stuck under the rubble.
Dewberry said police are now considering how best to extract the man’s body, and a crane will be brought in to remove some of the debris.
“It would be a lengthy and complicated operation to get that person back,” he said.
“Police rescues may facilitate this and require the use of cranes.”
Four Fire and Rescue NSW rescue workers were present at the scene on Friday morning, along with NSW Police and NSW Ambulance personnel.
The cause of the incident is unknown.
