SPRINGFIELD, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man killed in a farming accident near Springfield.

Bon Homme County Sheriff Lenny Gramkow tells the Mitchell Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/1swh9E0) that 35-year-old Grant McCann, of Springfield, was operating a sprayer about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday when a boom on the equipment got tangled with an overhead power line. McCann attempted to exit the tractor and was electrocuted.

Gramkow says the incident serves as a “grim reminder” for farmers to exercise caution when operating large machinery.
