Authorities in Renville County say one person was seriously injured in a farm accident near Hector.

According to the report, a 15-year-old male was working on a grain dryer on Monday about 15 feet off the ground when his legs became entangled in an auger.  The incident took place on a farm on the 49000 block of 740th Avenue in Martinsburg Township.

Officials say the juvenile was trapped in the auger.  He was eventually extricated and taken to Minneapolis Children's Hospital by North Memorial Air care with serious injuries.

The Renville County Sheriff's Office is currently investigating the incident.
