Agassiz farmer in fatal accident

An Agassiz farmer lost his life on Sunday night, when the machinery he was driving flipped into a ditch.

Harry Boer was driving his Bobcat near his farm when the machine slid into the icy cold Hogg ditch, said Agassiz Fire Chief Wayne Dyer.

Several firefighters and RCMP attended the scene, at about 7:30 p.m. Four rescuers jumped into the cold waters to free Boer from the Bobcat and the waters.

"The did CPR as soon as they got him out," Dyer said. "And they worked on him all the way to the hospital."

Boer, 62, operated a farm located in the 4000 block of the Lougheed Hwy., near Bodnar Road.
