Associated Press - May 22, 2017 1:53 pm

A Kansas farmer died when he was electrocuted while working with a chemical sprayer.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports 76-year-old Robert Sharp, of Anthony, died Saturday in a field just south of Anthony in Harper County.

The patrol says he was working with a chemical sprayer and was electrocuted when he extended the boom on the sprayer and it touched an electrical wire.
