Three workers have had a lucky escape after a cherry picker toppled in the Melbourne suburb of Richmond this morning.
Two men were in the picker and another man was operating it outside a building off Church Street, when the boom toppled, about 10:00am (AEDT).
One worker was taken to the Alfred Hospital with minor injuries after he fell onto a cyclone fence.
The other men were not hurt.
