Man run over by combine harvester, lives

A man taking a nap in a Billings, MT, cornfield was run over by a combine harvester without serious injury, reports Carmen Irish of the Billings Gazette.

At about 1:15 p.m., the landowner drove a combine into the field to harvest corn. The farmer drove about 50 yards when the combine shuddered, [Sheriff's Lt. Kent] O’Donnell said. “The farmer thought he had driven over a fence post or an irrigation pipe, but once he turned the machine off, he could hear a man screaming,” he said. The machine had caught the man’s clothing and sucked him into the cutter.
