Teen dies in family farm accident
A federal agency says it is investigating the death of Curvin Kropf, 15, of Tampico, who was fatally injured Thursday when he was run over by a tractor-like machine while working on a farm near Deer Grove.
Sheriff Kelly Wilhelmi said he contacted the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Thursday, but the agency appears to have no jurisdiction over a private family farm with 10 or fewer employees.
OSHA spokeswoman Rhonda Burke said today (Friday) an inspector was at the scene of the accident.
