Huyssteen said one of the men was in a critical condition, but despite efforts to resuscitate him, he was declared dead on the scene.

The second man sustained minor injuries and was transported to Northdale hospital.

Huyssteen said the cow didn't sustain any injuries and was seen walking in the nearby bush.
