A KBRF-AM report says Douglas County deputies responded to an emergency call Tuesday evening to an address near Osakis.

A family member found Douglas Rutten unconscious and injured on the ground.

Deputies say it's not clear whether Rutten fell off the tractor and was injured, or if he had a medical issue that caused him to fall before getting on the tractor.

He was declared dead at the scene.
