A boy died Tuesday afternoon in a farming accident in Reno County, officials said.

Emergency crews were called at around 4:55 p.m. to a rural area between Hutchinson and Haven after a child had been caught in the power take-off of a tractor, the Reno County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post. The boy, identified as 5-year-old Adam Schrock, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sheriff Randy Henderson said the boy’s clothes were wrapped up in the tractor’s PTO as a family member was working on it.
