Worker’s fingers sawn off in workplace accident

A worker has been rushed to hospital after a workplace incident in Kiama on NSW’s south coast.

The worker, in his 60s, was using a table saw at a property at Curramore on Tuesday afternoon when the accident occurred.

Early reports suggest that the timber may have jammed in the saw.

Emergency services attended the scene and found the worker waiting for assistance with his lost fingers on ice.

Ambulance workers transported him to Shellharbour Airport by road, where he was then flown to Royal North Shore Hospital, where he underwent surgery to attempt and reattach the fingers.

An NSW Police spokeswoman confirmed that WorkCover had been contacted.
