Melbourne Man Saved After Getting Trapped In Newly Dug Grave
A man has been freed after falling into a partially dug grave in Melbourne's north-east.
Emergency crews were called to the Eltham Cemetery just before 8am, following reports that a male in his 40s had fallen into the two-metre-deep hole. It is believed he became trapped at around 7:45am.
An Ambulance Victoria spokeswoman revealed that the man sustained injuries to his leg but is in a stable condition at The Royal Melbourne Hospital.
