The 61-year-old man who was rushed to the Limassol general hospital on Wednesday morning after being run over by his tanker is in comfortable condition, reports said.
According to the police, the accident occurred at around 11.15am in a Limassol petrol station on Ayias Fylaxeos street, where the man had parked the vehicle. The 61-year-old reportedly forgot to pull the handbrake and the vehicle began slowly moving backwards, while he was exiting the cabin. The vehicle’s wheels run over his leg while he was trying to immobilise the tanker, and he was freed by a fire service crew.
He is currently in the orthopaedic department of the Limassol hospital for treatment.
