A man working in a field in central Minnesota was airlifted to a hospital after suffering serious injuries to his leg on Saturday, Sept. 19. 

News of the farming accident was released Tuesday by the Stearns County Sheriff's Office, which said the call for help came around 12:32 p.m. from a field near County Road 30 and County Road 174 in Oak Township (about 20-25 miles west of St. Cloud). 

Officers arrived at the field and found a 58-year-old Albany man who had sustained significant injuries to his leg when he was pinned between a pickup and a loaded silage wagon. 

The man was treated at the scene by Freeport Rescue and transported by ambulance to a Melrose Hospital, at which point he was airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital. 

The sheriff's office determined that the accident happened when two men were attempting to hook the loaded silage wagon to the pickup.
