Dog Walker In Combine Harvester Accident
A 41 year old man has lost up to half his leg after an accident involving a combine harvester near Wimborne.
He'd apparently gone into the field at Hampreston chasing after his two pet Dalmation dogs.
A Dorset Police spokesperson said:
"We would like to remind the public that dangerous farm equipment is being extensively used in fields for harvest at this time of year, and advise that bridleways and public footpaths are strictly adhered to."
A statement read:
At approximately 11.30am on Sunday 14 October 2012, Dorset Police were called to a report of a man seriously injured in an incident involving a combine harvester in the Hampreston area of Wimborne.
The victim, a 41-year-old man from Wimborne, was treated at the scene by an ambulance crew for serious injuries to his right leg.
He was airlifted to Southampton General Hospital for further treatment, where his condition is said to be serious but stable.
Officers are making enquiries to ascertain exactly what happened and are keen to speak to a man who assisted at the scene leaving his brown fleece jacket there.
Witnesses and anyone with information are urged to contact DS Ian Fletcher, of Bournemouth CID on 101 as soon as possible.
The busy road's being made two lanes in both directions between Segensworth and Titchfield - it's due to take 18 months.
