Craig Tanner and two maintenance colleagues were working on a vat used to mix black news ink last Thursday when things went terribly, tragically wrong.
Trapped by a mixing arm in the vat at DIC Australia's factory in inner-Sydney Auburn, they were soon in serious danger. Despite attempts to save his life, 42-year-old father-of three Tanner died in the accident; his two colleagues were freed and taken to Westmead Hospital.
The tragedy - less than three weeks before Christmas - has prompted the establishment of a pledge site to help his widow and three children, who are aged seven and under. By Tuesday midday it had raised more than $47,000, ahead of the original $30,000 target. You can help here.
