A man, 34, who was impaled by a tractor fork in a farm accident at Numurkah last week, remains in a stable condition in the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

On Monday, February, 27, the man was found by his father at a property on Rendells Rd, Numurkah, and was flown to Melbourne.

‘‘The tractor rolled forward and the forks have impaled him from behind, through the back and into the upper groin region, trapping him for a period,’’ Numurkah police Sergeant Tim Gleeson said.

An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said the man was flown to hospital suffering from abdominal and back injuries.

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating the incident.
