Sheriff Shawn Larsen says 41-year-old Kenneth Wielenberg was unloading silage from a silage box trailer when it got clogged. While trying to clear the auger, Wielenberg got his arm caught in the machinery.

Authorities say he was airlifted to the Hennepin County Medical Center with extensive injuries to his right arm.
