GREENSBURG, Ind. (AP) - A farmer died over the weekend in southeastern Indiana after being pinned beneath a round bale of hay he and another person were moving.

The Decatur County Sheriff's Department says deputies arrived at the farm of 63-year-old John Bennett near Greensburg to find him beneath the large bale and without a pulse.

The Republic of Columbus reports a deputy performed CPR at the scene Saturday, but Bennett was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital.

Decatur County Coroner Charity Banks ruled Bennett died of traumatic cardiac and respiratory arrest caused by blunt force trauma.
