ST. CLOUD, Minn. (WCCO) – A 27-year-old man was taken to the hospital after an accident involving a piece of farm equipment.

The St. Cloud Police Department said Glen Leander Traut, of Rice, Minn., was working underneath a large mower Tuesday afternoon.

Traut was working on the blades when the mower fell from the jack, pinning his head underneath.

Police said Traut was able to call 911 on his cell phone. His family members didn’t realize he was injured until they saw squad cars pulling into the yard.

Responders pulled the mower from Traut’s head and transported him to the St. Cloud Hospital.

His current condition was not reported.
