Farmer Gruesomely Saves His Own Life After Getting Stuck in Equipment
OMAHA, Neb. -- Kurt Kaser has been a grain farmer for more than four decades, but last month, the 63-year-old Nebraska man "paid the price of being in a hurry and not paying attention," he tells WMUR. As he was unloading corn, his leg got caught in farm equipment and he couldn't get it out. "Stepped into the [corn] hopper in the little hole. It just sucked my leg in and I was trying to pull it out, but it kept pulling," he says. He couldn't reach his cellphone to call for help, and feared he would soon lose consciousness—or his leg would get pulled farther in.
