Snover area man injured in farming accident


(WATERTOWN TOWNSHIP) -- A 35-year old Snover man was seriously injured Saturday when both of his legs became caught in a beet harvester. The incident took place just prior to 3:30 p.m. in a field off of Watertown Road west of Johnson Road in Sanilac County's Watertown Township. Sheriff's deputies say that Christopher Warczinsky's legs were freed just before Sanilac EMS and the Sandusky Fire Department arrived on scene. Warczinsky had been working with Henry Stoutenburg and Travis Mitchell to fix a problem with the beet harvester when the machine took off, throwing Warczinsky into the harvester and pinning him. The Snover man was transported to McKenzie Health System in Sandusky and later transferred by ambulance to Saginaw Covenant Medical Center for further treatment.
