Man’s leg amputated whilst using industrial mower in NSW

A man has lost his leg after an accident involving an industrial lawn mower in the Hawkesbury, north-west of Sydney.

The 56-year-old was operating the mower on a property at Wilberforce about 4.25pm when he suffered an amputation to the lower leg, CareFlight said in a release.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and a NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic assessed the man, including an ultrasound, and provided treatment for the wound.

He was intubated and placed in an induced coma.

He was airlifted to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
