Man dies in farm equipment accident

December 10, 2003

(Elko-AP) -- A 59-year-old man is dead after he fell into machinery at a farm in Elko, a town in Houston County in middle Georgia.

A Houston County sheriff's report says a farmhand at Perfect Farms -- James McGhee -- was loading soybeans with an auger when he apparently slipped about 3:00PM Monday. His hand and clothing were caught in the machine.

McGhee was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia, where he later died. The sheriff's report says authorities ordered toxicology tests.
