Farmer dies af­ter cows tram­ple him

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

A FARMER has been tram­pled to death by his own herd of cows.

John Sav­age, 82, had gone to look af­ter one of the an­i­mals which had fallen ill when he was fa­tally in­jured.

He was flown from Green Farm near Hunger­ford, Berks, to hos­pi­tal by air am­bu­lance but could not be saved.

Michael King­ton, a friend from beef farmer Mr Sav­age’s school days, said: “He called the vet out to one of his cows and he got kicked or knocked over, and then tram­pled.”

Po­lice said there would prob­a­bly be an in­quest but they are treat­ing his death as an ac­ci­dent.
