(ABC 6 News) - The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office said a 36-year-old Elgin man was killed in a farm accident in Farmington Township Wednesday night.

Officials said Nathan Holtegaard was working on the front end of a corn picker at a farm near 75th St NE and 40th Ave NE when it fell on him shortly after 10 p.m.


A relative of Nathan's found him in the shed and used a forklift to remove the corn picker while calling officials.

The OSCO said life-saving efforts were attempted but Nathan was declared dead at the scene.

A previous version of this article incorrectly reported Nathan's age.
