He sustained life-threatening injuries and sadly died a short time after arriving at RPH.

According to 7 News, investigators have been examining a steel pipe, but it’s unclear whether that pipe fell from a truck.​

Several Worksafe investigators spent hours at the scene on Friday afternoon, looking at an area between the wall and the truck.​

Seven News understands most employees of the family-run steelwork manufacturing business left after the tragedy.

A report will now be prepared for the Coroner.​
