State Police say a Greene man is lucky to be alive after the farm tractor he was on flipped over and pinned him underneath on Saturday afternoon.
42 year old Kenneth Bragdon was hauling trees on his property on Buzzell Lane when a tree he was dragging became snagged on another and caused the 1953 Farmall tractor to overturn.
Trooper Nathan Jamo said Buzzell was trapped under the tractor for more than two hours in 15 degree temps until he was able to contact a family member by cell phone. The Greene Fire Department responded to the scene, freed Bragdon, and transported him to an awaiting Lifeflight helicopter.
Bragdon is being treated for internal injuries at Central Maine Medical Center. Jamo said the chain being used to haul the logs was attached too high to the rear of the tractor and caused it to flip end over end.
