Wisconsin Ag Connection - 11/09/2017

Investigators are still trying to figure out what led to a man's death in a farm accident in central Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

Authorities were called to a farm field near Stratford after the man apparently passed out near a tractor and then became caught in the machine's power take-off unit.

Marathon County deputies found the victim entangled in the PTO upon arrival and a medical examiner pronounced him dead at the scene.

The accident happened just before 7:00 p.m. in the town of Cleveland.

The man's name was not immediately released.
