A 56-year-old man has been airlifted to hospital in a stable condition after suffering multiple injuries falling from a roof at a house in the Blue Mountains this afternoon.
The man had been working with a leaf blower to clear gutters when his wife inside heard his fall and went outside, finding him on the ground unconscious near the base of the ladder.
CareFlight’s rapid response rescue helicopter was called to Hazlebrook at 1.55pm, landing in a football oval near the accident scene.
Local NSW Ambulance crews provided initial treatment to the man and conveyed him to the oval to meet the helicopter.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and critical care paramedic provided further treatment for a upper limb fractures before the man was transferred to the helicopter.
He was airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
