A SECOND family in a week is in mourning after another child death on a farm.

The PSNI say a 10-year-old boy has died in a farm accident at Rahtfriland Rd, Castlewellan, Co Down on Tuesday afternoon.

The Health and Safety Executive NI (HSENI) have been informed and an investigation is underway.

The PSNI said on Tuesday afternoon: “HSENI is investigating the death of a 10-year-old boy on a Co Down farm.

“Our deepest sympathies are with the family at this most difficult time.”

Last week, little Harry Starrett died on his grandfather’s farm in Co Armagh.

The six-year-old was found unconscious by his grandfather in a milking parlour last Tuesday afternoon.

At first it was believe he died after being overcome by slurry fumes in a shed.

However, a post mortem revealed the primary school boy died from an underlying heart condition.
