Dickinson County Child Dies In Farm Accident

KSAL StaffOctober 24, 2013

Dickinson County authorities say a 5-year-old girl has died in a farming accident.

The Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office identifies the girl as Brooklyn Debenham of rural Abilene.

Sheriff Gareth Hoffman says that emergency responders were called to a soybean field in northern Dickinson County on Wednesday evening. He says the child had been riding in the cab of the combine with her father when the combine hit a bump or some obstacle. The combine’s windshield shattered, and the child fell through the glass and landed on the machine’s header.

Hoffman says the child died in the field.

The sheriff tells KSAL News that the community of Abilene is taking the news hard. He says “you can feel it in the air. Heads are certainly down”.
