A HGV was also pictured within the tape.
The supermarket remained open as normal. In a statement, a spokesperson for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) said: “At just after 8am on October 6, 2023, one fire engine from Whitefield and Bury fire stations as well as a technical response unit from Ashton were called to an incident on Spring Street in Bury.
“The incident involved a man partially trapped under a tractor, which had fallen from an HGV. Fire personnel used specialist equipment to free the male who was then taken to hospital by North West Ambulance Service.
“Crews were in attendance for around one and a half hours.”
