Information:

A Coronial Inquest into the death of a maintenance fitter was recently held following a fatal accident on a minesite. The fitter received multiple injuries when a split rim wheel and tyre assembly failed catastrophically whilst being fitted to a mobile crane.

The outer section of the cast iron split rim failed allowing a sudden release of energy. The wheel components along with the fitter were projected some 13 metres in the blast.
