A spokesman said: “One rapid response paramedic and two emergency ambulance crews were dispatched to the incident.

 

“The Charity Air Ambulance was also tasked to the scene. Unfortunately, despite their efforts, the patient died at the scene.”

 

South Tyrone MP Tom Elliott told the Belfast Telegraph the incident was ‘unthinkable’.

 

‘Bubbly young man’

He said: “They are a well respected family, well known and they would be good community people.

“I do not honestly know what to say at this time. It is unthinkable that this would come to your door.

 

“He was an 18-year-old with a large part of his life in front of him. He was a very bubbly young man and very outgoing, he made friends easy.”

 

Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland confirmed it was aware of the incident and is making enquiries.
