GENEVA, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man has died after being run over by a combine in a southeast Nebraska cornfield.
The Hastings Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/SDfLFD) that the accident occurred Tuesday morning in a field about five miles south-southwest of Geneva.
The Fillmore County Sheriff's Department identified the man as 58-year-old James Gabel, of Grand Island. The department says Gabel worked for Allied Genetics in Grand Island and was measuring a test plot when the combine backed over him.
The department says Gabel died after being taken to Fillmore County Hospital in Geneva.
From Jim's niece, Lynda Scott: Jim and his family resided and farmed north of Scottsbluff several years ago before moving to Grand Island. Jim has many family and friends still living in the area.
