Farmer dies after being struck by shed roof

A farmer has died after being struck by a shed roof that detached in strong winds at Mirboo North yesterday.


It is believed the 50-year-old was operating a quad bike while moving cattle when he and several cows were hit about 6pm.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death is the second confirmed workplace fatality for 2024. There were nine work-related deaths at the same time last year.
