HARTFORD CITY, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a central Indiana teenager was killed when he apparently stumbled while moving logs and fell into a hydraulic stump grinder.
The Blackford County coroner says 18-year-old Cody Bronnenberg was killed Saturday on a rural property near Hartford City, 80 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
Sheriff Jeff Sones tells The (Muncie) Star Press (http://tspne.ws/1qlRD2y ) that Bronnenberg, of Yorktown, was working with his uncle, who runs a tree service company.
The sheriff says emergency crews found the teen tangled in the stump grinder and that he was dead when they arrived.
This story has been corrected to show that Hartford City is northeast of Indianapolis, not northwest.
