An elderly orchardist was rushed to hospital Thursday

An elderly orchardist was rushed to hospital Thursday, Sept. 27, after his tractor rolled over him in Winfield.

First response firefighters and paramedics worked in tandem to rescue the man and load him into an ambulance.

RCMP Const. Kris Clark said the tractor apparently rolled completely over the man, so he was not pinned underneath. Though serious, it appeared his injuries were not life-threatening.
