Kansas man dies in farming accident

LANCASTER, Kan. (AP)--Authorities in northeast Kansas say a problem with hydraulics on a tractor may have led to a fatal farming accident.

Atchison County Sheriff John Calhoon identifies the victim as 58-year-old Rick Scholz, who was pronounced dead at the scene of the Jan. 15 accident.

KNZA-FM reports authorities were called to the small community of Lancaster and found that a large, round hay bale had fallen on Scholz.

The sheriff said Scholz apparently had got off a tractor and was trying to put the bale into a cattle feeder. He said the hydraulics on the tractor appeared to have failed, dropping the large bale on the victim.
