Aussie farmer dies after being trapped under car by a crane

A man was trapped under a car in Adelaide’s CBD on Wednesday afternoon when a crane fell on top of his car.

The 36-year-old was on his way to work when the accident happened.

He was taken to a nearby hospital and later died.

It’s understood the crane was a large one weighing about 150 kilograms and was operating in the city’s inner west when it fell.

Cabin crews have been searching the area for the crane and have released images of the incident showing a large portion of the crane being lifted from the ground.

The crane is a large piece of equipment used to haul farm equipment up the side of buildings.

The man is believed to be a retired construction worker.

Aerial footage of the area showed the crane dangling from the crane housing.

The incident happened around 8.45am.
