A farm accident claims the life of a Lebanon County teenager.  It happened at about 11 o’clock Wednesday morning in the barnyard at a farm in the 100 block of East Reistville Road in Heidelberg Township.

State police say the unidentified 17 year old male was helping a neighbor harvest corn.  The juvenile’s right leg became entangled in a corn bail that was being automatically fed through a piece of machinery. The boy was pulled into the machine and fatally injured.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lebanon County Coroner.
