Farm task kills man

A 20-YEAR-old man was killed when a tractor rolled onto him at a Levenstrath farm on Saturday afternoon.

Police said the man had lifted a car with the tractor and was “chocking up” the car when the tractor began rolling forward.

Though no-one was with him at the time, police said a person heard the man's scream and saw the tractor rolling forward.

It is understood the person came to the young man's aid, but he had already been run over.

He died at the scene, police said.

Although further details of the tragedy were not available yesterday, police described it as a terrible accident.
