Workers Injured in Serious Accident on Jewel Site

Work has ground to a halt at Yuhu’s Jewel development on the Gold Coast, with three men rushed to hospital following a serious incident at the beachfront site.

The accident occurred at about 8.45am on Wednesday when a steel tray carrying “hundreds of kilos” of electrical cable collapsed on to the three men.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said that three male patients, aged 27 and 28, were transferred to the Gold Coast University Hospital.

A 27-year-old man suffered a leg, chest and pelvis injuries, while the other two men suffered shoulder, hip and head injuries.

All men are in a stable condition with one of the men’s injuries downgraded from serious.

Multiplex managing director Graham Cottam confirmed the incident.

“The project team immediately actioned emergency procedures and an ambulance has attended site and treated the injured parties.”

“We have notified other relevant authorities including Workplace Health and Safety Queensland.

It is the second accident on the Old Burleigh Road site this year, with the Gold Coast Bulletin reporting that a worker had sustained serious injuries after a horrific accident on site in May.
