Staff reports

An 81-year-old man was listed in guarded condition this morning after a tractor rolled over him.

George W. Henry, of 4205 County Road 18, Canandaigua, was standing in front of the tractor’s left rear tire as he attempted to jump start a tractor at about 3:45 p.m. Monday, according to Ontario County sheriff’s deputies.

The tractor started to move and knocked Henry to the ground and ran over his lower abdomen, deputies said.

Crystal Beach firefighters and Canandaigua ambulance crews responded to the scene.

Henry, who deputies said appeared to have suffered internal injuries, was flown by Mercy Flight Central helicopter to Strong Memorial Hospital.
