Man Trapped After Tractor Accident Freed

Posted: Updated:

A man has been rescued from beneath a tractor south of Lincoln.

Firefighters were dispatched around 5 p.m. to an address south of the small town of Hickman. The tractor had been pushing dirt into a ravine when it tipped over and trapped the man.

Hickman Fire Chief Stan Draper says it took about 30 minutes to cut off the tractor steering wheel and dig away some dirt so the man could be freed.

The man was flown to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
