Man critical in hospital after serious incident on Tandragee farm

Ambulance Police Day

A man is in a critical condition in hospital following a serious accident at a farm in Tandragee earlier this week.

The man, who is in his 40s, was working on a property in the Moodage Road area on Wednesday when the incident, involving a steel beam, happened.

Emergency services rushed to the scene before he was then transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital where he remains in an induced coma.

DUP MLA William Irwin, who knows the injured man personally, has extended his best wishes in what he hopes will be a full and speedy recovery.

“This is very distressing obviously for the man and his family circle and I want to take this opportunity to wish him well as he undergoes surgery and I hope and pray that he makes progress and recovers from his injuries,” said Mr Irwin.

“I have known him for some years and he is a hard working individual and a real family man and I know a great many people will be supporting him through this difficult period.”

A spokesperson for the NI Ambulance Service said: “The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service received a 999 call at 5.10pm on Wednesday, 12 August 2020 following reports of an incident at Moodage Road, Tandragee.

“NIAS despatched one emergency crew to the scene.

“Following assessment and initial treatment at the scene, one patient was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital, Belfast by ambulance.”
