GRANITE FALLS, Minn. (AP) — A man has died after being pinned by a skid steer loader in southwestern Minnesota.

The Yellow Medicine County sheriff’s office got a 911 call Wednesday that a man had been pinned in a skid loader about five miles east of St. Leo.

The West Central Tribune reports emergency responders were able to free 34-year-old Anthony Eberhard from the loader, but he was pronounced dead at a Canby hospital.
