A man is recovering in hospital after being impaled by a steel bar, following a nasty fall at a construction site in Gosford.

Emergency services were called to the site just before 3pm yesterday, after the 35-year-old tripped and fell from the eighth storey onto the floor below - landing on the bar.

It went through his THIGH and he was reportedly stuck there for an hour while fire crews tried to cut him free.

He was sedated and treated at the scene by paramedics, before being taken to Gosford Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
