Media release No. 220/2020

On Wednesday, November 4, 2020, shortly before 3:30 p.m., Rega received the notification of an occupational accident in the Bodmi area. The emergency services immediately moved out and were able to find a lifeless person next to two crashed vehicles.

Based on the situation found, an occupational accident must be assumed. According to the current status of the investigations, an agricultural vehicle got off the path and fell around 20-30 meters down the steep meadow. Presumably while trying to recover it with an excavator, the excavator also crashed. A 61-year-old man sustained fatal injuries. The exact course of the accident is the subject of ongoing investigations, which are carried out by the Uri canton police, under the direction of the Uri public prosecutor.

Rega, the Flüelen fire brigade, two forest guards, the Office for Environmental Protection, the Uri public prosecutor’s office and the Uri cantonal police were in action.
