A man has been seriously injured while working on a container ship at Lyttelton.

The man, working as a foreman stevedore, was injured in a fall while working on the Spirit of Endurance yesterday.

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch spokeswoman Jocelyn Patel said first-aiders at the site gave the man support before he was taken to Christchurch Hospital.

The company had spoken to the man's family, she said.

Maritime New Zealand was making preliminary inquiries, a spokesman said.

An official investigation had not been started at this stage, he said.

A Christchurch Hospital spokeswoman said the man was in a serious but stable condition today.

Opinion poll

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
