An 80-year-old man fell from a height of about four meters while picking olives on his property in Scordia, Italy. He lost his balance and suffered serious injuries, requiring a red code transport to the hospital. His wife alerted emergency services, and he was immediately attended to by paramedics. The elderly man’s conditions were severe as he had hit his head during the fall. Firefighters also arrived at the scene and transported the man to San Marco hospital in Catania. This incident adds to a series of accidents during olive picking in recent weeks in the province of Ragusa. One of these accidents was fatal, with a 73-year-old man losing his life after falling onto an iron rod while losing balance on a property in Scicli.
