Remembering a tractor


Tractor65 years ago, Cecil Harris was out in his field when he jumped off his tractor to check on something. The tractor unfortunately kept going, and he became trapped underneath it. Recognizing that he might die, he scratched instructions into the side of the tractor: “In case I die in this mess, I leave all to the wife.”

Harris was eventually found, the tractor was pulled off of him, and he was taken to hospital where he eventually died of his injuries. The tractor will was found to be valid.

Last week, the University of Saskatchewan, where the tractor is displayed, remembered the 65th anniversary of this very unusual will. You can read an article here.
