Description

Late one summer afternoon, a 28-year-old dairy farmer entered a 10-foot-deep manure pit to replace a shear pin on an agitator shaft. While he was climbing out, he was overcome and fell onto the pit floor. The man’s 15-year- old nephew saw what had happened, climbed into the pit, and also collapsed. One by one, others entered the pit to help - the boy’s father, his cousin, and his grandfather who owned the farm - and all were overcome.
