Six ag-related fatalities in less than 2 years
DEER GROVE – The death of a Tampico teenager, who was run over by a farm machine Thursday, is not the first farm-related tragedy to hit the Sauk Valley.
Since late July 2010, five teenagers and one adult have died while working in an agricultural job, prompting several lawsuits that are still pending.
Whiteside County sheriff’s deputies were called Thursday morning to a cornfield just south of Deer Grove after a 15-year-old Tampico boy, who had been cutting individual cornstalks, fell off a tractor-like machine and was run over.
