A worker in Robertson was critically injured after a tree fell on him at a work site yesterday.
Emergency services attended the scene just before 1pm, and RFS workers commenced CPR on the worker who had gone into cardiac arrest.
An Ambulance NSW spokeswoman explained that four teams of paramedics arrived shortly after the RFS and took over CPR, before assisting in transporting the worker to Liverpool Hospital by air, in a critical condition.
NSW Ambulance duty operations manager Gavin Wood explained that the scene was challenging for paramedics.
“When paramedics arrived they were faced with a complex scene, with a tree fallen on the man who had gone into cardiac arrest,” he said.
“CPR was commenced by other emergency services, before paramedics arrived on scene.
“We were faced with a number of challenges to try to provide the best care for the patient.
“These situations are extremely demanding for emergency services, we are did everything we could to provide the best possible outcome for the patient.”
