Man crushed to death by gate in Wollongong

A man has died after being crushed by a gate at an industrial site in New South Wales.

The workplace accident occurred about 6am on Berkeley Rd in Berkeley, a southern suburb of Wollongong.

Emergency services were called to reports “a man was crushed by a gate”, police said in a statement on Friday.

Despite their efforts, he died at the scene.

“The body, which has not yet been formally identified, is believed to be a man aged in his 60s,” police said.

Police are investigating the man’s death in conjunction with SafeWork NSW and a report will be prepared for the coroner.

In Melbourne last week, a man died after he was crushed by a metal pole while unloading a truck.
