Worker injured by own van
Auckland: A carpet cleaner is in a serious condition after being pinned against a house when his work van rolled down a driveway in central Auckland.
Emergency services were called to Koraha St at 8.45am.
A neighbour who was first on the scene said he was doing some exercise when he heard what he initially thought was a cat crying.
‘‘Then I heard somebody yelling for help. I looked out and I could see — it was a very horrible scene — he was on the corner and the van was crushing him to the house.’’
He immediately ran towards the driveway in a bid to help while also on the phone to emergency services.
A St John spokeswoman confirmed the man suffered serious injuries and was taken to Auckland City Hospital. — The New Zealand Herald
