Farming accident kills one on Ishigaki Island

Date Posted: 2007-11-27

A 58-year-old farmer was found dead in a field near Ishigaki City late Friday night by his son, hours after failing to return home for dinner.
Kouzen Uchihara was found trapped in a cultivator machine. Police responding to the accident found a shocking scene, with Uchihara’s body halfway pulled into the cultivator, behind the driveshaft. The machine’s cover was off, exposing a 7cm opening through which the farmer’s body was pulled.
Police believe Uchihara wad tried to look at the inside of the cultivator, removing the cover to do so. He apparently did not shut off the machine’s engine, and when he placed his head close to the opening, the machine pulled first his head and neck, then his upper torso into the machine, crushing him.
