A 59-year-old man has been crushed to death and another is fighting for life after machinery fell on the pair while trying to load equipment at a former Victorian milk processing plant.
The men are believed to have been loading heavy equipment into a shipping container when the accident happened about 11am on Wednesday at Leitchville, near Echuca.
"It is believed machinery fell on two men at the site," a Victoria Police statement said.
The man from Kialla died at the scene.
WorkSafe Victoria is investigating.
