A WORKSITE BALLS-UP
A TEENAGE tradie suffered an unfortunate work site accident when his genitals got caught in a belt sander.
Two ambulance crews and a NSW Fire and Rescue unit were called to a building in Orlando Ave, Mosman, on Friday when the 18-year-old somehow got his pants — and his genitals — tangled in the belt sander.
The young man was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital suffering lacerations to the genital area.
The sander had to be removed at the hospital.
After treatment the young man was discharged.
SafeWork NSW is now investigating the incident.
