WILLMAR — A Kandiyohi County man has been hospitalized after a Thanksgiving weekend farming accident.
The 45-year-old man’s hand was caught in a corn picker — a large piece of harvesting machinery in Colfax Township, Kandiyohi County.
the victim, whose name has not been released, was taken by helicopter to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The full extent of his injuries and his current condition aren’t clear. The victim lives in nearby New London. Corn pickers, also known as corn harvesters, are a common source of agricultural accidents.
Such incidents can be avoided by “simply turning off the power to your cornpicker before servicing it in any way.”
