Two thrown from basket -No Harnesses

Two men painting an apartment building in Richmond, New South Wales were thrown from their truck mounted lift after it lost stability and tipped.
The men aged 36 and 50 fell around six metres to the ground while the lift remained upright. It seems clear that they were not wearing harnesses.
The lift was listing badly but upright

Local reports suggest that one of the lifts front outriggers sank into soft ground causing the lift to list badly. The 36 year old was treated for minor injuries, the other man escaped injury entirely.
