Second tractor accident in 3 days-pensioner serious

 

A 76 year old has suffered serious injuries after being trapped under his tractor in the morning while cleaning a farming field in the Zygi area.

The man from Chirokitia fell off the vehicle under as yet unidentified circumstances and was found by his son, who notified police just after ten thirty.

The fire department freed the man from under the wheels while a police investigation is on-going.

The 76 year old was rushed to the Nicosia General Hospital and his condition is described as very serious.

It is the second accident with tractors in three days. A man was crushed  by his vehicle on Wednesday in Paphos and succumbed to his injuries the next day.

He had undergone surgery in the Paphos General Hospital, which was the first such procedure following the Covid outbreak and the multiple closures of the institution.
