A man has been taken to hospital after a crane toppled over at a Melbourne shipping container depot.
The crane, used to pick up and transport shipping containers, fell in the West Melbourne yard on Monday morning.
An Ambulance Victorian spokesman said a man in his 30s was inside the craneâ€™s cab.
He said the man was inside the craneâ€™s cabin about 15 metres above the ground when it fell.
â€˜â€˜He was initially trapped and MFB crews had to cut away part of the cabin so that paramedics could get to him,â€™â€™ he said.
The man suffered extensive cuts to his head, serious arm injuries and possible spine injuries.
He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
