A seven-year-old girl who was injured in a tragic farm accident last evening has died. She succumbed to her injuries earlier this evening.
The RCMP would like to acknowledge the assistance of the many emergency workers and volunteers who were involved in the response to this tragedy.
Our thoughts are with the families involved during what must be an extremely difficult time.
RCMP from Annapolis and Digby Counties were on scene last evening at an accident in Clementsvale. At approximately 6:50 p.m., a seven-year-old girl was critically injured when she was struck by a farm tractor. The operator of the tractor was mowing a hayfield with the tractor and did not see the girl. The hay in the field was approximately 3 feet high.
The girl sustained critical injuries and was transported by ambulance to a local medical clinic. She was then transported via LifeFlight for further medical treatment in Halifax.
Our thoughts are with the families during this difficult time.
The investigation is ongoing.
