A 31-year-old Minnesota man was tragically killed in a freak accident this week after he was caught in a farming machine, Rice County authorities said.
Mitchell Kenneth Gregory was dead when deputies responded to reports of an accident at his home at around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday.
His body was still trapped in the Haybine, a farming machine that mows down hay, crushes it, and rolls it into bales.
“Mitchell loved farming, and had a deep passion for his beef cattle,” an obituary for the victim read.
It remains unclear how Gregory ended up caught in the equipment. His death was ruled an accident.
