LANSING, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a 44-year-old man has died in accident that occurred while he was working on equipment at a central New York farm.

Troopers say Schenk became pinned underneath the equipment while working alone Monday afternoon. He was later discovered by a co-worker.

Schenk was pronounced dead at the scene.
