Subject: 14 year old boy suffers serious head injuries after working unsupervised
A 14 year old boy suffered serious head injuries when he was struck by the forks of a materials handler that was being driven by the farmer’s 15 year old son. The farmer had allowed the boys to work unsupervised. They were connecting a trailer to a tractor in an unsafe manner when it seems the draw bar fell from the fork and the forks struck the child on the head.
The youth had driven the handler since he was 13 having received no training other than what his Father had provided.
