More than 40 jobs could be at risk after a crane operator at Brodener’s Beach House in Brodenton fell victim to a fall from a balcony on Friday night.
Brodener said in a statement it was “working closely with the NSW Police and emergency services” after the crane operator was injured during a crane repair job at the beach house.
Police said the crane worker was taken to the hospital in a serious condition.
He was later released.
Broderson’s spokesperson, Tony Grosz, said the company was “disappointed” by the incident and that the crane has been taken to a specialist crane shop in Brisbane for further assessment.
“We are deeply concerned about this incident, and we want to make sure the operator is supported through this traumatic experience,” he said.
