Boat-mast death investigations continue

Investigations will continue next week into a fatal accident at a well known boat-mast factory.

A man was killed at Matrix Masts in Silverdale near Auckland, yesterday.

The Labour Department says the 44-year-old fell into a large mast-making lathe.

Ambulance staff attended, but the man died at the scene.

Matrix Masts has been making carbon spars for racing boats and super-yachts since 1986.
