Terrible Tragedy



“The Huron County Sheriff said the boy – since identified by his family as Jeffery Lewis Powell, 13 – had been dropped-off at the field so he could go hunt deer earlier in the day and had likely fallen asleep in the cornfield, WJRT reported.

A man, 25, from Pigeon, Michigan, returned to the field at about 9am, to finish harvesting it, not knowing that there was anybody in the field.  

While driving a large Krone corn chopper, the man apparently drove over Powell, only realizing what had happened after finding him ‘a very short while later,’ the Huron Daily Tribune reported.  

Emergency workers declared Powell dead at the scene and an autopsy was ordered for him”
