Richmond candidates 2022: incumbent Labor, Justine Elliot

Justine Elliot is the incumbent member for the seat of Richmond. She has held the seat since 2004, representing Labor and winning six elections.

A 57-year-old man escaped with minor injuries after two tons of sheet glass fell on his legs at his Cudgen workplace on Friday afternoon.

The Westpac Life Saver Helicopter together with local ambulance crews were called in at about 1.30pm after the man was able to make an emergency call from his mobile phone.

The accident is reported to happened around 12.30pm when the man was opening a crate of pool-fencing glass at his Cudgen workshop. The contents apparently toppled over, crushing his legs underneath.

It took paramedics 45 minutes to free the man, who was then transported by road to Gold Coast hospital, where he was reported to be in a stable condition with bruising to his thighs and some other minor injuries.
