The man in his sixties was doing mechanical work on the bobcat when it fell from a ramp, landing on him and fatally wounding him.

Paramedics say the man sustained serious chest and abdominal injuries following the incident and was treated on the scene before being rushed to Toowoomba Base Hospital where he died shortly after.
