Workplace Accident Ends Tragically

Sadly a man has died as a result of a workplace accident on the weekend.

The man in his mid-30s was working in a transport yard when the accident occurred on Saturday morning.

It is understood that a large pipe was being unloaded by a forklift when it fell, hitting the man.

Police have treated the death as non-suspicious and were expecting to complete their report by the end of the day.

Workplace Health and Safety officers will then investigate, before the case is handed to the Queensland Coroner.
