A man died on a rural property near Bega on the weekend, with police alleging he may have been working on a tractor when it occurred.
A NSW Police spokesperson said emergency services were called to a property on Greendale Rd, Greendale about 2pm on Sunday.
After police officers arrived at the locality, which is between Bega and Brogo, they found a deceased 79-year-old man.
"An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the man's death is underway," the police spokesperson said.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this article made reference to the death being possibly caused by the tractor rolling on the man. A family member has made contact to say that was not the case, and that authorities will investigate the actual cause.
