A WORKER was seriously injured on an Isle of Wight building site this week.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is making enquiries after a report that part of a huge crane fell on him at a McCarthy and Stone site, near Sainsburyâ€™s, Newport, on Tuesday.
The man is understood to have suffered serious leg or foot injuries, as the crane was being dismantled, and was taken to St Maryâ€™s Hospital, Newport, where it is believed he underwent an operation to save his limb.
A McCarthy and Stone spokesman confirmed yesterday (Wednesday) the man remained in hospital and was said to be ‘doing wellâ€™.
The spokesman said: “We are investigating an incident at our Newport development which resulted in an injury to one of our employees.
“The safety of our people is paramount and the company has a robust approach to health and safety matters.”
