Minn. Man Dies In Farm Accident

PERHAM, Minn. (AP) — A 64-year-old man has died in a farm accident near Perham.

Otter Tail County sheriff’s officers say a family member found Danny Schroeer on the farm lying face-down and unresponsive Wednesday morning. A skid-steer loader was lodged against a fence post with its engine running and wheels turning.

An ambulance crew tried to revive Schroeer, but he was pronounced dead in the emergency room.

Authorities say the loader rolled over Schroeer, fatally injuring him.
