A FARMER was knocked unconscious when he was hit by a bottle of urine falling from a 50 meter crane.
The man, who was part of a construction team working on a new health center in Worthing, was taken to hospital.
Now he is recovering at home.
An eyewitness said the worker caught a cold after the bottle hit him on the head.
“Someone in the crane did something they weren’t supposed to do,” the witness said.
Sussex Police said the Health and Safety Agency will investigate the incident.
“Police were called around 5.30pm on Friday 29 July after a man was hit by a falling object at a construction site in Richmond Road, Worthing,” a police spokesman said.
“The man reported neck pain and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.”
Construction crews have been working at the site in Richmond Road, Worthing for the past two years.
A spokesman for construction company Galliford Try said safety is their top priority.
“As a responsible contractor, health and safety is a top priority for Galliford Try,” he said.
“We can confirm that an incident occurred at our Worthing premises on Friday.
“The investigation is currently ongoing.”
A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive said: “HSE is aware of the incident and is investigating.”
Work on the Worthing Integrated Care Center (WICC) started last year.
The new clinic will combine medical practices, mental health services, community services and a pharmacy in a central location in the city of West Sussex.
