Boy, 5, dies in Minnesota farm accident

Posted: Updated:
WOLF LAKE, Minn. -- A 5-year-old boy has died after a farm accident in Becker County.

The sheriff's office says the boy apparently had tried to get into a skid steer by crawling between the bucket and frame. Authorities say the machine was not running but was under hydraulic pressure. When the boy grabbed the control level to pull himself up, that released the hydraulic pressure, pinning him between the hydraulic rams and the frame of the skid steer.

The accident was reported around 6 p.m. Thursday south of Wolf Lake.

KBRF-AM reports the boy died at the scene. His name was not immediately released.
