Emergency crews had a sticky recovery operation on their hands on Friday.

A worker fell into a vat of “liquid recycle material” at the Ashbridges Bay Waste Treatment plant around 5am.

Paramedics held the man’s head above water while the fire department worked to free him.

He was rescued shortly after 6:30am and rushed to hospital. He suffered a broken leg but is expected to recover.
