Quebec Farmer Killed in Farming Accident

Quebec provincial police say they’re investigating the death of a 29-year-old man who was trapped under a tractor on a farm on the province’s Gaspe Peninsula.

Police spokesman Sargeant Stephane Tremblay says emergency services were called to the farm in New Richmond, Quebec across Chaleur Bay from New Brunswick, shortly before 11 p-m Sunday night. 

He says the man was transported to hospital, where he was declared dead.

Tremblay says the tractor likely overturned on a slope.
