He got stuck upside down in a crevasse
Bündner († 78) dies while searching for sheep
A man found himself stuck upside down in a crack between a wall and bales of straw while searching for a sheep in a stable on Tuesday evening. The 78-year-old could only be recovered dead.
A sheep and a man had fallen into this gap. Any help came too late for the man.
In the canton of Graubünden, a 78-year-old man died while tending a friend’s sheep.
According to previous knowledge, he alone looked after the sheep of a farmer friend in Vrin on Tuesday evening. During the check, he noticed that an animal was missing. After a search in the barn, he found the sheep in a gap between a wall and stacked straw and hay bales.
When trying to save the sheep, the man himself fell into this crevasse and got stuck in it headfirst, writes the Graubünden cantonal police.
Around 10:30 p.m., an acquaintance noticed that the 78-year-old was missing and went to the stable. There he found the missing man and freed him from the rift. However, the alarmed emergency doctor could only determine the death of the casualty. The circumstances of this death are being clarified by the Graubünden cantonal police. (man)
