Authorities have released the name of the 15-year-old that was seriously injured in a farm accident south of Hector Monday morning.
The Renville County Sheriff’s Office says Jed Anderson, from Lubbock, TX was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center for treatment.
The Sheriff’s Office says the preliminary investigation revealed that Anderson was 15 feet off the ground, working on a grain dryer when his legs became entangled in an auger and was trapped. He was eventually extricated from the grain dryer and was transported to HCMC.
The accident was reported just after 10:30am on the 49000 block of 740th Ave in Renville County, which is about five miles south of Hector in Martinsburg Township.
