A CUDGEWA man injured when he fell from the roof of a dairy and landed on a concrete floor has recovered in Albury hospital.
Paramedics expected the man would have to be transported to The Alfred hospital, but he recovered sufficiently to avoid the flight.
Corryong police Sen-Constable Simon O’Toole said the man, 62, was dismantling an old dairy on his son’s Murray Valley Highway property at Cudgewa about 9.30am.
He fell about three metres through roof rafters to the floor after hitting a 44-gallon drum on the way down.
Sen-Constable O’Toole said the man had dislocated his shoulder, injured his head and had possible stomach injuries.
His brother, working nearby, heard the sound of the fall and phoned emergency services.
Sen-Constable O’Toole said the serious injuries were not life-threatening.
Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman Gabrielle Degenhardt said the victim was taken by ambulance to the Albury Base hospital.
WorkSafe Victoria officers will visit the property this week to consider an investigation.
