A falling tree killed a farmer who was trying to herd his cattle during Tuesday's storm.

The Sibley County Sheriff's Office says Marvin Zeismer, 62, was on a four-wheeler attempting to herd the animals from the pasture because of the storm when the tree fell, KDUZ reports.

First responders found Ziesmer at 6:39 p.m. under the tree on the property, according to the Belle Plaine Herald.

The farm is located off Highway 15, a few miles north of Arlington, in southern Minnesota, the Star Tribune says.

A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for the area near the man's farm Tuesday night, and hail and tree damage were reported in Arlington following the storm.
