According to Emergencias 112 Andalucia, a 50-year-old man died this Thursday, December 29, after being run over by a tractor that he was repairing in the municipality of Aguilar de la Frontera in Cordoba.
The incident occurred a few minutes after 3:00pm, with a witness calling the 112 switchboards to report that he had found the man. He informed the operator that the man was trapped between a tractor and a tree on a farm located on the road between the towns of Aguilar de la Frontera and Montalban de Cordova.
112 immediately deployed Montilla Fire Brigade to the location, along with an ambulance from the 061 Health Emergency Centre. They were joined by patrols from the Guardia Civil. As reported by the latter, the victim suffered an accident when he was trapped against an olive tree by a tractor while he was fixing it on a farm that he owned.
