Victorian farmer struck and killed by machinery

A man has died after being struck by a post hole digger at a farm in Raywood, north of Bendigo.

It’s believed the farmer, who was in his 40s, was using machinery when an attachment failed, causing the equipment to hit him.

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating the incident and is unable to provide further information at this time.

The fatality brings the number of Victorian workplace deaths this year to 13, two more than the same time last year.
