A Dar­win man has suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries to both his legs after be­ing run over by a grass slasher in a work­place in­ci­dent. The man is in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion in Royal Dar­win Hos­pi­tal after emer­gency ser­vices re­sponded to calls on a prop­erty at Mid­dle Point, south of Dar­win, just after 7pm on Sat­ur­day.

The de­tails of how he was run over by the in­dus­trial mower are still un­clear, but Craig Gar­raway, duty man­ager at St John Am­bu­lance, said it was a har­row­ing in­ci­dent for crews to re­spond to. “For our paramedics and the peo­ple on the scene — there was a num­ber of peo­ple on the scene try­ing to help the male — [it was] quite a trau­matic in­ci­dent as you can imag­ine for ev­ery­one in­volved,” he said.
