A 48-year-old groundsman suffered severe hand injuries in an industrial accident shortly after 7am this morning (April 4) at the Port Royal golf course in Southampton.
A police spokeswoman said the unfortunate incident occurred while he was “operating a tractor style mower, when he placed his hand inside of the machine attempting to remove some debris”.
“As a result, several fingers were severed from his left hand. The man was conveyed to KEMH via ambulance and is currently being treated for his injuries, which are not believed to be life threatening.”
