A Douglas County, Minnesota farmer is on the mend after being trapped in a corn picker last week for about an hour.
According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, emergency personnel arrived on scene Thursday and found Todd Wunderlich, 54, of Parkers Prairie alert and conscious, but had his arm pinned in a corn picker. The victim had been trapped in the machinery for about an hour until Miltona Fire Department personnel were able to extricate his arm. Wunderlich was flown by LifeLink III to North Memorial Hospital for further treatment.
The Sheriff’s Office said Wunderlich had stopped the tractor and tried to clear something from the corn picker when his arm became trapped.
