Nine-year-old injured in farming accident

Iowa County Dispatch received a report Friday morning of a farming accident at a farm near Pleasant Ridge. At approximately 10:22 a.m., a call was received by the sheriff's office of a nine-year-old who had gotten caught in a power take off.
Prior to the arrival of emergency personnel, those on scene were able to extricate the child from the equipment. Dodgeville Fire and EMS soon responded and Med Flight was requested.
Iowa County Emergency Management asked residents to avoid the County Road Z and ZZ intersection while Med Flight landed that morning. The nine-year-old was transported to UW Hospital via Med Flight with what was later reported to be non-life threatening injuries.
