A 29-year-old man's lower leg was severed after he collided with a snow blower in the early hours of Monday in Obertauern, Salzburg.

Despite being rushed to hospital in Schwarzach his left leg was so badly damaged it couldn’t be reattached.

The hospital said that the man is in a stable condition.

A 37-year-old man was driving a tractor with a snow blower attached during heavy snow flurries around 3.30am. The snow blower caught the leg of the younger man as he walked past.

The tractor driver tested negative for alcohol.
