A bureau worker has died after being trapped for hours in a prohibited ink tank in Sydney.
Fellow workers and emergency services desperately tried to free him after his legs became trapped while trying to purify the tank.
A blade at the bottom of the tank is thought to have unexpected changed while he and two co-workers were inside around 8.30am this morning.
New South Wales Ambulance Superintendent Paul Turner pronounced two workers were rescued, one after a few mins and another after two hours, but it was unfit to save the victim.
News Australia reported the victim is believed to be in his 20s or 30s and his physique is still trapped in the 6 metre prolonged tank.
Both discovered men were taken to Westmead Hospital with mixed leg fractures and are now in a fast condition.
Supt Turner said: ‘The third studious unfortunately died on scene, this is a terrible tragedy.
‘We had 10 ambulance resources on scene, along with NSW Police and Fire and Rescue. We did positively all we could. It’s a comfortless set of resources so close to Christmas.’
When paramedics arrived he was unwavering and articulate but his condition fast deteriorated.
