McPherson Co. boy dies in tractor accident

KWCH – May 8, 2017

A young boy is dead after falling off of a tractor in McPherson County Friday.

It happened at around 8:45 in the evening southwest of Inman.

McPherson County Sheriff Investigator Captain Doug Anderson says 9-year-old Caden Avery was mowing the lawn with his dad when they struck something that jarred the tractor.

Caden fell off and was struck by the tractor. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Captain Anderson says the boy’s father was taken to the hospital for emotional trauma.

This is the second tractor-related death in McPherson County in less than a year. Another young boy died back in November.
