A worker irrigating grass on a traffic island was crushed to death when he chose to rest under a truck in the southwestern city of Muğla on Tuesday.

Escaping the scorching sun, İsmail Çatal took shelter under the truck carrying the water tank used for irrigation.

Unaware of the man beneath the vehicle, the driver started the engine and ran over Çatal, who died at the scene.
