It was a frustrating Friday night for Medics and fire/first responders from Meat Camp after a man was pinned under an overturned tractor, a man who needed to be airlifted when weather prevented any such service to the area.  The incident was at about 7:20 Friday night on Houck Road where the tractor was found overturned on the man, and as Watauga Medics worked to free the man, the call went out for first WINGS Air Rescue, then any other available flight service to land near the scene to transport the badly injured man.  But with storms in the area Friday night, no flight could make it into the area, and medics rushed the man to Watauga Medical Center.  Few other details of the man or his condition were available.
