Man dies following freak accident in Gasparillo

A 34-year-old man is dead, succumbing to injuries he sustained four days after he was involved in an accident in Gasparillo.

The deceased is Ryan Rattan, a roadside assistance employee. Police described the incident as a ‘freak accident’.

Rattan suffered injuries while working along Jules Trace, Gasparillo at about 10.30 pm on Thursday.

Reports note that while Rattan was offloading a Nissan B14 from a wrecker, the vehicle rolled off the tow-truck, crushing Rattan in the process.

Rattan was eventually moved from under the vehicle and rushed for medical treatment at the San Fernando General Hospital.

On Monday night he succumbed to his injuries.
