A landscape contractor who fell on fencing is now walking unaided
A man whose leg was impaled on fencing in Farnborough’s King George V playing fields is making a good recovery.
The Veolia Environmental Services landscape worker, thought to be in his 40s, was pruning trees on the edge of the park next to The Grove at around 4pm on August 22 when he fell on the top of security fencing.
He was cut free by firefighters and rushed to Southampton General Hospital by air ambulance.
A Veolia Environmental Services spokesperson said: “We are pleased to confirm that the member of our landscapes team who was injured in an incident is making a good recovery.
“He was released from hospital within 48 hours and is walking unaided – we expect him to return to work shortly.”
