A man died in a weekend accident at a hog facility in Northern Kossuth County.

According to the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office, a 9-1-1 call came in Saturday reporting a farming-related accident about two miles south of the Minnesota border. When emergency personnel arrived they determine that a man was dead.

An investigation determined that the victim, identified as 37-year-old Ryan Chad Adams of Ledyard, and another individual were attempting to work on a manure pump when the accident occurred.  It was determined a piece of equipment disengaged under pressure and struck Adams in the head.
