AN investigation is continuing into the death of a Glasgow man after he and a colleague fell more than 140ft when a truck-mounted lift snapped.
Gary Currie, 39, from Baillieston, was pronounced dead at the scene in Port Dundas Road, Cowcaddens, Glasgow.
His colleague, a 34-year-old man, was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary with severe head injuries. He was said to be in a "stable condition" following treatment.
Strathclyde Police is conducting a joint investigation with officials from the Health and Safety Executive.
The accident happened about 12.25pm on Wednesday at the rear of Buchanan House.
The men were fixing safety netting on the site as part of refurbishment work, but the boom of the work lift buckled, sending the workers crashing to the ground.
One worker, who did not wish to be named, said: "It seems the man fell from a cherry picker. Apparently it snapped and he hit some scaffolding as he fell."
Buchanan House is occupied by several tenants, including Network Rail and Transport Scotland, and is undergoing a revamp.
