A large block of stone has plummeted 25 metres from a Grocon building site at Martin Place in the second near-miss at the busy CBD site in just under two months.
The accident happened at the busiest time of day and according to CFMEU Safety Co-ordinator Mick Preston it is pure luck no one was killed.
The stone narrowly missed six workers on its way down and caused extensive damage to scaffolding before it landed just centimetres inside the site boundary.
