A man, aged in his 60s, has sustained head, chest and suspected spinal injuries after falling three metres through the roof of a Glenning Valley residence.

The man was conducting home improvements on the roof before the fall.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked shortly after 3:00pm and landed 20 minutes later in the Glenning Valley backyard. NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment for the man.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic conducted a clinical assessment on the man, which included an ultrasound, while undertaking spinal precautions.

CareFlight’s medical team provided ongoing observation for the man as he was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition.
