A man is freed from being trapped under a Bobcat Tractor late Tuesday afternoon.
Public Information Officer Eric Nielson, on a post on the Southern Stone County Fire Protection District Facebook Page, states Firefighters were dispatched to Bread Tray Mountain Road in Lampe just after 3:00 to find the a Trailer Frame of the Tractor wedged between the tire and the man’s leg.
The trailer was unstable and had to be stabilized before Firefighters could extricate the man. The Jaws of Life tool was used to pull the trailer away with the axle and tire eventually cut away after about 45 minutes.
The man in his 60’s, unidentified in the District’s Post, was taken to Cox South Hospital in Springfield in Stable Condition.
