Neighbour yelled 'get out' to family before bulldozer hit

A NEIGHBOUR who helped a family escape from their home south-west of Newcastle moments before a stolen bulldozer tore through the place will be recommended for a bravery award.

The Teralba home was destroyed yesterday when a man allegedly stole a bulldozer from a nearby coal preparation plant and used it to flatten four cars before he ploughed through the property.
 

The 48-year-old man was arrested at the scene and charged with breaching an apprehended violence order and destroying with intent to endanger life.

He also allegedly chased a man who had been sleeping in a shed before destroying the weatherboard cottage.

He is due to face Newcastle Local Court today.
