A 14-year-old hunter apparently fell asleep in a Michigan field before he was run over and killed by a corn chopper, police say.

The boy was dropped off in a field in Chandler Township early Saturday so he could hunt, the Huron County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. Once he arrived, police believe he may have fallen asleep.

Later, a 25-year-old man showed up to finish harvesting the field with a large corn chopper. The farm worker had no idea anyone was in the field and ran over the teen with the chopper, according to police.

The man quickly spotted the teen and called police. Emergency workers arrived just before 9 a.m.

The teen was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Officials have not released his name.

The Huron County Medical Examiner’s Office will perform an autopsy in the coming days.

Chandler Township is roughly 130 miles north of Detroit.

Very sad I am sure some will not understand how this could happen

today could I sleep through a corn chopper making passes ? probably not.

but when I was a 14 , I could sleep bouncing around in the bed of a truck down gravel roads.

Sad all the way around. The guy chopping corn will have to live with that all his life and replay it in his mind although it's not his fault.. I can see how it could happen. Hopefully the lawyers stay out of it and the family takes it for what it is, a tragic accident.

I was setting coon snares in the weeds surrounding a corn field and a combine nearly snuck up on me before.

Horrible

When I was in the army, we were out on field maneuvers. We pitched our tents under some trees one night. It was a nice night and some of the guys wanted to set up in the field adjacent to where were and sleep under the stars. Instead, we opted for the wooded area.

The next day we found out there were night maneuvers and a number of APCs drove right through the field were we would have been sleeping if we had chosen that area to set up.

I about got an archery antelope hunter with my pickup one time. He was setup in a little used, weedy two track along a fence with his 2-D decoy on the other side of the fence. A buddy and I were headed to a spot to hunt deer and going up the 2 track he was on. When he jumped up and I got stopped he could put both hands on the hood of my pickup. He had been asleep and I wouldn't have seen him until I was over and passed him. Luckily we were going slow and looking at his decoy. The decoy had blown over and we couldn't tell what it was. Scared all 3 of us pretty bad.

Live in the same county. The boy had just returned from Colorado elk hunting, drove straight thru to make it back for youth deer season. I can understand being tired enough to lay down and fall sound asleep. Not much chance to realize what is going on when choppers are 16’ and moving 6 mph or more. Can’t fathom how his parents are handling this or the operator

Terrible tragedy - Prayers to the family of the fallen boy. Huron County is the county I hunted as a school boy. We obviously heard it on our Local Michigan News.

Terrible.
Why do they need to do an autopsy?


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

I'm guessing to see if he died of some natural cause before the corn chopper arrived.
