An Albany man is dead after authorities say a gravity box overturned and landed on him Wednesday.

The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office identifies the victim as 52-year-old Daniel Wielenberg.

At 7:22pm, the Stearns County Communications Center received a 911 call reporting a man was found unresponsive under an overturned gravity box at 39637 245th Avenue in Krain Township.

Authorities say Wielenberg was located under an overturned gravity box by a family member. They were able to remove the gravity box by using a skid steer, however, Wielenberg was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office says it appeared a corn bridge had formed over the top of the box and Wielenberg attempted to break the bridge causing the box to overturn.
