Man lifts palm tree off crushed co-worker

An arborist who became pinned beneath a runaway palm tree at Stanwell Park has been airlifted to hospital.

The 38-year-old man and a co-worker cut down a five-metre palm on Sheridan Crescent shortly before 1pm Wednesday.

It is understood the man was trimming the tree on an inclined surface once it was on the ground.

It rolled over his toes and across his body, then came to rest on his chest.

The man’s co-worker was able to free him by lifting the tree, which had a diametre of about 30cms and appeared to weigh more than a single man could lift.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Norm Rees said the man suffered stomach and chest injuries, and a possible fractured pelvis.

He lost consciousness for a short period before he was airlifted to St George Hospital.

He remained at the hospital in a stable condition late Wednesday afternoon.
