On Monday, April 16th the Hammondsport Fire Department was alerted to a farm tractor accident in the town of Urbana. Car 21 arrived on scene of a vineyard tractor rolled over with a person trapped under it. The determination was quickly made to get assistance from a local towing company to help lift the tractor. Crews From Rescue 7 used cribbing to support the machine while it was being lifted. The Patient under the Tractor was removed but unfortunately did not survive due to the nature of the injuries.
This was a very difficult incident for the members to handle but they did so with great professionalism. The Members of the Hammondsport Fire Department are very well trained to handle situations like these.
Hammondsport Fire Department, The New York State Police, Hammondsport Ambulance and T&R Towing all responded to the scene.
