A Minnesota man was killed while working on a farm Wednesday night.
The fatal accident happened around 7:20 p.m. in Stearns County, with the sheriff's office receiving a 911 call about a man found unresponsive under an overturned gravity box in Krain Township, near Albany.
A family member found 52-year-old Daniel Wielenberg under the gravity box and was able to move the piece of equipment with a skid steer, but Wielenberg died at the scene.
"It appeared a corn bridge had formed over the top of the box," said the Stearns County Sheriff's Office in a release. "Mr. Wielenberg attempted to break the bridge causing the box to overturn."
A gravity box, also known as a slant wagon, is designed to allow the contents of a wagon to funnel out simply by opening the door.
