A Czech tractor driver died under eight tons of manure in a bizarre accident that has baffled his employers, local media reported.

The 34-year old man, identified only as Martin T, suffocated after the load fell on him while he was dumping it in a field near the western Czech city of Karlovy Vary, news Web Site reported Sunday. "It absolutely beats me how this could happen," said Vladimir Erps, chief of the company employing the victim.

They say he was operating a tractor and he should of been inside the cab. For some reason the man got under the truck. The only thing that comes to mind is that the hydraulics failed and he went under to fix it and then the load dump on him when reconnecting hydraulics? What else could it be?
