Man hurt as tractor rolls

A man suffered a suspected spinal neck injury after he rolled a farm tractor three times down a slope while mowing a hay paddock on Saturday.

The 33-year-old Tokoroa man was able to walk a short distance to the farm house for help.

Putaruru St John was dispatched to the scene for initial treatment before the Westpac Waikato Air Ambulance was called and the man was flown to Waikato Hospital.
