A MAN was lucky to es­cape with his life af­ter be­ing thrown from the 45-tonne ex­ca­va­tor he was work­ing in at a Pore­punkah pine plan­ta­tion on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

The ex­ca­va­tor tipped and rolled about three times whilst trav­el­ling 70m down a hill ac­cord­ing to wit­nesses.

The man was found by col­leagues ly­ing in­jured and dazed in the dirt next to the ma­chine.
