A 24-year-old man was airlifted to an unknown hospital Monday night following a freak accident north of Nevis.

Preliminary reports indicate the man, from Americorps, was working on a trail near Waboose Lake north of Nevis when the van the crew were in got stuck on the sandy beach.


The crew apparently tried to jack up the rear tires and the victim had crawled underneath it.
