A teenager was seriously hurt in a Renville County grain dryer accident Monday morning, at a farm five miles south of Hector. The Sheriff’s Office reported that 15-year-old Jed Anderson of Lubbock, Texas was 15 feet off the ground working on the grain dryer when his legs became entangled in an auger and he became trapped.

Responding to the scene were the Sheriff’s Office, Olivia Area Technical Rescue Team, and Hector Fire and Ambulance. They extricated the boy from the dryer, and he was flown to Minneapolis Children’s Hospital by North Memorial Air Care with serious injuries.
