A man has been seriously injured after falling off a roof in Glenmore Park today.
This morning on Monday, July 18, NSW Ambulance paramedics were called to reports of a patient falling off a roof on Karuk Street, Glenmore Park.
Two units and an inspector were dispatched by road along with the Toll NSW Ambulance rescue helicopter with a critical care doctor and critical care paramedic on board.
On arrival, paramedics treated a male patient believed to be in his 20s for serious injuries to his legs and shoulders.
Paramedics stabilised him, before transporting him to Westmead Hospital.
“A two storey fall always brings a risk of critical injuries,” Inspector Keith Craig said.
“On this occasion, the patient suffered some pretty painful injuries which were compounded by the fact he collided with a Colorbond fence during the fall.
Working at heights can be dangerous places even for experienced tradespeople.
This patient is lucky it wasn’t a more tragic outcome.”
