Tree cutter falls

A man trimming trees was injured in Sydney, Australia, on Wednesday after falling around 10 metres from the trailer lift he was working from.

The man, 50, was apparently ejected from the platform after a large tree limb came down on the boom, bouncing him out of the platform. He was rushed to hospital with broken ribs and pelvic injuries, but is reported to be in a stable condition.

The falling branch also brought overhead lines down, one of which struck a woman watching from below. The incident occurred in the back yard of a house in the Chatswood area of the city
