DUP Leader and Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA Rt Hon Arlene Foster has expressed her condolences to the family of a Fermanagh man who died as a result of a farm incident today.
Mrs Foster said, “This a horrific and very tragic accident and I wish to extend my sympathies to the family of the man killed as a result. Sadly another farming family has been plunged into grief and they are very much in our thoughts at this devastating time. The man was well known within the farming community and his character will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
This is a very busy period for our farmers. However one death on a farm is one too many and this incident has brought into focus the grim dangers that can exist while working with farm machiney.”
