A young farm worker described as ’very bubbly’ has died in an incident involving a tractor.
The trainee mechanic reportedly died following the incident inside a garage on a farm in the Boho Road area of Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.
He has been named locally as Neil Graham.
According to the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service, a 999 call was received at 2.39pm yesterday (May 22) and the Air Ambulance attended the scene.
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’.
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.
