Kasaragod: In a tragic mishap, Muhammed Rizwan (21), hailing from Karabar of Beltangady in DK district, died on Monday.
He had accompanied his father in a lorry which had transported timber to Kozhikode. His father Abdulla was driving the lorry on their way back from there.
As they reached a downhill at Kadakavannat near Mulleria, he noticed that some srange sound was emanating from under the chassis.
He took the lorry to a side and after parking it he asked his son to have look underneath. As Rizwan was checking under the lorry, it suddenly moved down the gradient.
The wheels ran over him, resulting in his spot death, said family sources in Beltangady.
