Shaken to Death

A young farm worker of 20 was killed after being trapped by a ‘tree-shaker’ arm on a tractor during olive harvesting. The incident occurred in Espeluy, which is between the city of Jaén and Linares. The man had been working on the rollers within the machine, which had been malfunctioning, when it closed on him, trapping him around the abdomen, and went into vibration mode – the machine is used to literally shake the fruit off the trees.
