A farm worker was seriously injured when his clothing (shirt) became entangled in an exposed rotating shaft of a twin auger.
The person was directing fertiliser from the twin augers into compartments of an air-seeding cart at the discharge end of the auger.
The person reached across one of the augers to operate the feed process when the rotating shaft entangled his shirt. The clothing tightened around his neck causing life threatening injuries.
