While getting out of a combine, a 67-year-old in Mühlviertel, Upper Austria, slipped under the wheel, at the same time the driver drove away and ran over the other man.
A 49-year-old from the Rohrbach district was on Thursday in Stollnberg, Ulrichsberg municipality, harvesting a grain field with a combine. A 67-year-old, also from the Rohrbach district, checked the sieves of the threshing machine.
After the posture check was completed, the 67-year-old climbed off the threshing machine around 10:20 a.m. He slid down the ladder and landed under the left front wheel. The 49-year-old driver of the combine, who had failed to notice the incident, started the combine and rolled the 67-year-old over.
He was seriously injured and was flown to Kepler University Hospital by rescue helicopter after receiving emergency medical assistance. The operator of the combine received a shock.
