Tree trimmer injured in platform overturn

The overturned 'cherry picker'

9. August 2017

A man trimming trees in an Orlando, Florida street was injured yesterday when his platform overturned. 

The man, 29, was working for Brightview Landscape Development and using a lightweight, three wheeled self-propelled two boom fruit picking platform, and appears to have driven one wheel off of a verge, causing an overturn.  

He was rushed to hospital where his injuries were thankfully said to be ‘non life threatening’. OSHA has been notified of the incident.  SOURCE: Vertikal.net
