06 Nov 2019

Four men were injured and a vehicle badly damaged following an explosion at the Australia 108 worksite last month.

Emergency services were called to the site at around 1.15pm on October 19 after the cleaning mechanism at the back of a concrete truck became dislodged and shot out concrete and other debris.

Melbourne Fire Brigade (MFB) commander Rick Gili said three men were hit by the aggregate, with four people taken to hospital in total – two of whom were in a serious condition.

The force of the blast broke the window of a passing car on Southbank Boulevard. 

Police say two men were taken to the Alfred Hospital in a serious condition and two others are in a stable condition at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

A Worksafe spokesperson said it was still investigating the incident.
