A 71-year-old man is dead after a farming accident near Euroa last night involving an auger.

Emergency services were called about 5.30pm to Cullens Rd, Molka.

Ambulance Victoria spokesman John Mullen said the elderly man was dead when paramedics arrived at the farm.

WorkSafe inspectors were on site last night and a spokesperson said the man was working on an elevated auger when it collapsed and fatally crushed him.

An auger is a rotating conveyor device.

WorkSafe had issued a non-disturbance notice and inspectors would return to the scene today, the spokesperson said.

Police notified the man’s family of his death soon after the accident.
