A 57 year old Township of Malahide man was airlifted to hospital after being run over by a farm packer being pulled by a tractor. The accident occurred at approximately 11:43 a.m. on May 30, 2014 on a rural property on Eden Line between Plank Road and Sandytown Road, Township of Bayham.

At the time of the accident the 57 year old male was cutting the lawn around a cabin situated on the property. He was in the process of walking backwards with the push mower as a farm tractor passed behind him. Police investigation revealed that the victim had observed the farm tractor but did not realize that it was towing a cultivator and behind that the packer. Thinking it was clear the victim stepped backwards into the path of the packer and was run over.

The victim was subsequently airlifted to hospital in critical condition.

Police have deemed the incident not to be suspicious in nature and was accidental. The Ministry of Labour is not investigating.
