Excavator in Trench

That does not look good for the operator.

It was at Ranger in about 97 or 98, he ws digging a footing for the mill expansion. It had been raining heavily for several days which had halted work for most of the week. There was only about 8m left to dig when the ground gave way, it slid fairly slowly to the bottom of the trench then tipped over. Unfortunatly the footing was about 1500mm deeper that the rest of the ground and crushed the cab killing the driver.
