Hay bale

A man has died after being pinned between a piece of machinery and a hay bale in rural Le Sueur County Sunday night.

The accident happened at a home in Elysian Township, northeast of Mankato, just after 8:30 p.m., with 57-year-old Martin Jeffery Baker dying from his injuries at the scene.

The Le Sueur County Sheriff's Office says that Baker was pinned between a large round bale and a metal-framed livestock feeder.

Responders were able to extricate Baker from between the two objects before performing life-saving measures, but his injuries were too severe.
