Tragic and fatal accident for 4 year old

St Elzéar, (Quebec) September 22, 2014 – A child of 4 years old died from a fall out of a tractor he was riding on in St.Elzéar, a small village south of Quebec City, on the weekend. Naturally the whole village, where everybody knows everybody, is in complete shock and sadness for the family.

The child was riding with an adult inside the cabin of the farm tractor when he apparently opened the door and fell out onto the wheel, throwing him down onto the ground where he was unfortunately crushed by the wheel itself. He was rushed to hospital in Quebec City where he died of his injuries.

No one is quite sure how the child managed to open the door, or how he managed to fall as he did. The Sûreté du Québec (provincial police) is investigating the accident and hope to discover why the door opened so easily or if the fact that the tractor was rolling on the turf beside the road against the traffic had anything to do with the incident.

It was very windy the morning of the accident which may have caused the door to fly open more easily than usual.

Needless to say, the entire village is mourning the loss of one of their own and trying to comfort the family involved as much as possible.
