One employee confirmed with The Morning Bulletin that Mr Travers tragically lost his life in the accident.

He said he was saddened to have lost "such a young workmate".

According to Mr Travers' Facebook account, he formerly attended Rockhampton High School and had also worked for Sibelco and Donndarra Concrete Cutting and Drilling.

"You have been taken way too soon.

"You are a brilliant father & my best friend.

"You will be missed terribly by all whose lives you have touched.

"We love you Roy & always will

"Rest In Peace. Xx"
