A 1-year-old boy died Wednesday evening after falling from a moving tractor.

Wesley Levi Manikowski fell from the cab of the tractor at 7:41 p.m. while out seeding cover crop with his 4-year-old brother and his father, Michael Mogren of Lidgerwood, according to a release from Sargent County Sheriff Travis Paeper.

Wesley, who would have turned 2 in August, was taken to Oakes Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the release said.

Paeper called the incident a “farming accident” but said it remains under investigation.

An autopsy was scheduled Thursday in Bismarck, the release said.
