Ireland, UK

A man suffered injuries to his legs last week after a narrow track spider lift he was moving overturned on him, trapping his legs under the machine.

The incident occurred on Tuesday in the town of Cavan in central Ireland, we have few details apart from a grainy photograph. We understand that the case has been referred to the Health and Safety Authority for investigation.

However it is clear from the photograph what happened, this is a large narrow track machine and has been turned on a kerb on a hill, a move that unless done very smoothly and carefully has a strong chance of causing such a flip.
