A man in his 80s is recovering from minor injuries after becoming trapped under a tractor Wednesday afternoon.

Surrey deputy fire Chief Dan Barnscher said rescue crews were dispatched to a property in the 16900-block of 8 Avenue at about 4:45 p.m.

According to the incident report, the senior “was operating his tractor on a hill and it tipped and pinned his leg beneath the tractor,” Barnscher said.

Firefighters used airbags to extricate the man, who was taken to hospital for observation.

“He appeared to have very minor injuries,” Barnscher said.
