PEMBROKE, N.Y. (AP) _ State police in Batavia say a 54-year-old man has died after becoming wedged under farm equipment he was trying to free from the mud.
Troopers say Kevin Doktor of Pembroke, 23 miles north of Buffalo, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on Sunday afternoon.
East Pembroke volunteer firefighters were called to Doktor's home at 4:15 Sunday afternoon and found him trapped beneath a skid steer bucket loader behind his house. He was apparently already dead. Firefighters told local media outlets that it took about 15 to 20 minutes to get the equipment off him.
