FARMER DIES IN TRACTOR ACCIDENT

A farmer was killed Saturday evening when his tractor fell into an underground silo in the Town of Java.

David Campbell, 41, of 5418 Route 78 was pronounced dead after being extricated from the silo by members of the North Java and Strykersville fire departments and Becker's Towing.

The Wyoming County Sheriff's Department said Campbell was scraping silage from the top of a "bunk" silo when his tractor got too close to the edge and fell 9 feet into an empty portion of the silo, trapping him.
