Central Minn. man, 73, found dead near his tractor
OSAKIS, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in central Minnesota say a 73-year-old man who was found unconscious near his tractor has died.
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.
