Authorities say a man who died on a family farm northwest of Howard was caught in a piece of machinery.
Miner County Sheriff Lanny Klinkhammer reports that 66-year-old James Rentschler died Friday after he fell and was pinned between the cab and arm of a skid steer-loader he was using to move containers of corn.
Rentschler's father found him a short time after the accident but paramedics were not able to save him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
