Teen Dies In Remsen, Iowa

Remsen, Iowa

A Remsen, Iowa teen died after a skid loader tipped over on him on Saturday, while he was helping put fence posts into the ground.

Plymouth County Sheriff's Office says 19-year-old Alexander Renken was found dead after being pinned underneath the heavy equipment.

Authorities say he was holding a post and the skid loader tipped over while it was operated by another man.

They say the driver put dirt into the bucket for added weight while pushing in the posts and that caused the skid loader to tip all the way forward, pinning Renken.
