A MEATWORKER has a suspected fractured pelvis after a cow crushed him against a wall in Melbourne’s west.

The 48-year-old man was pinned against the wall as he tried to coax the beast along a corridor at Brooklyn about 2.30pm today.

Paramedic Ross Parker said the man was hurt as the cow surged forward.

“It’s believed that his body rolled against the wall as the cow moved past before he fell to the ground,’’ Mr Parker said.

“Thankfully he didn’t hit his head, but he had pain through his pelvis making it too difficult to stand.’’

The distressed worker was given pain relief and taken to The Alfred hospital in a stable condition.
