It’s a living nightmare for the family of a four year old boy after he was killed on Saturday.

The boy died in hospital after being rushed there around 3:30 in the afternoon.

He was seriously injured after a utility trailer had rolled into a ditch while it was being re-positioned in an attempt to reattach it when it became unhitched.

The utility trailer, loaded with a water tank, had been pulled by an acreage tractor driven by a 63 year old woman. It was stopped at the time of the accident.
