A five-year-old boy has been hospitalised after falling off a tractor in Kofinou, police said on Tuesday.

A police spokesman said the accident took place around 10am, in a field where the boy had gone with his father.

He reportedly climbed onto a tractor but lost his balance and fell to the ground in his efforts to close its door.

The tractor was parked, and not running at the time of the accident.

The boy was first taken to Kofinou health centre and later to Nicosia general hospital, before being moved to Makarios children’s hospital’s surgical ward.

At Makarios hospital he received stitches to the head and chest, where he was injured.

Kofinou police are investigating the circumstances under which the child was injured.
