An 11 year old boy was seriously injured in a farming accident Tuesday morning in Tyre.
When emergency personnel arrived at the Pucker Road farm, they found Levi Schwartz’s arm stuck in a chain-operated shaft in a conveyor style wood planing machine. Investigators say Schwartz was working with the machine with his father prior to the accident. It appears a piece of Schwartz’s clothing became stuck and pulled him into the shaft and trapped him. He was airlifted to Upstate Medical Center.
The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
