SHIPSHEWANA, Ind. (AP) — A 7-year-old northern Indiana boy has died in a farming accident.

LaGrange County Sheriff Terry Martin told WSBT-TV that the boy has been identified as Kevin Lambright of Shipshewana, east of South Bend.

Authorities said the boy was riding on a makeshift seat on the bucket of a skid loader his father was driving May 3 when the seat came loose and he tumbled back onto the machine. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Goshen News said the boy was a first-grade student at Meadowview Elementary School.

WSBT said the boy’s 22-year-old brother also was killed in a car accident last November.
