Purcell in induced coma

Veteran Victorian trainer Bruce Purcell has been airlifted to hospital and is in a serious condition
after reportedly being kicked in the head by a horse. The incident occurred when 76-year-old
Purcell was unloading the horse from a float at roughly 4am on Friday. Cranbourne Turf Club
CEO Neil Bainbridge confirmed the incident had taken place in the float car park but said
details of the situation were still coming to light and that Victoria Police and WorkSafe Victoria
were investigating. “We’re still trying to get more details on exactly what happened this morning,
and of course all our thoughts at this time are with the trainer and his family,” Bainbridge said
