(KNSI) - A man was killed in a farm accident about four miles north of Albany.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says around 7:20 on Wednesday night, they were called about a man under an overturned gravity box at 39637 245th Avenue in Krain Township.

Deputies say 52-year-old Daniel Wielenberg was found under an overturned gravity box by a family member.

The family member got the gravity box off the Albany man by using a skid steer.

Wielenberg was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say it appeared a corn bridge had formed over the top of the box, and Wielenberg attempted to break the bridge causing the box to overturn.
