Man Dies in Farm Accident Near Albany
ALBANY -- An Albany man is dead after a farm accident.
Stearns County officials were called to 245th Avenue in Krain Township Wednesday around 7:30 p.m. on a report of an unresponsive man.
52-year-old Daniel Wielenberg of Albany was found under an overturned gravity box by a family member. Officials say it appears a corn bridge had formed over the top of the box. Wielenberg tried to break the bridge, causing the box to overturn.
A family member was able to remove the box with a skid steer, but Wielenberg was pronounced dead at the scene.
