Worker crushed to death in tragic crane accident

A man has died after becoming trapped underneath a crane in Adelaide.

About 9.30pm last night, police and emergency services were called to a construction site on Ayliffes Road after reports a man was caught under a crane.

Despite desperate attempts by emergency crews, the 35-year-old worker from Plympton died at the scene.


Ayliffes Road was closed for several hours while Major Crash Investigators examined the scene throughout the night but has since been reopened.

Police will continue to work in consultation with SafeWork SA.

R.I.P my brother from another mother. Its been 5 years since we worked together but it feels like it was yesterday. My condolences to Andy’s Wife and children and fellow workmates. The construction sites in Adelaide and Australia won’t be the same without you.c Your humour and the 100% you put in everytime you worked will be missed. See you on the other side my brother……..
