Public Safety personnel free operator trapped by tree on a tractor Monday morning

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) Personnel from the county’s EMS and fire service had to let the air out of the tires of a tractor after a man was trapped on the machine by a tree he was attempting to move. According to Lexington County, the tree fell backwards on the operator, pinning the man and prompting a call for assistance to the county’s 911 communications center. This all happened in the 600 block of Bimini Twist Circle in Saluda River Club off Corley Mill Road.

Units from Lexington County’s Department of Public Safety found the patient entrapped by a large portion of the tree which was lying across one of the man’s legs pinning him in the seat when they arrived. The rescuers immediately began efforts to stabilize the tree. Once they had the tree stabilized where it wouldn’t move any further, they were able to release air from the tires of the machine to free the patient.
