WAVERLY, Iowa — A Waverly man was killed in an apparent farming accident north of Waverly, law enforcement officials said.

Bremer County Sheriff’s deputies said deputies were called to a field north of Waverly for a medical emergency on April 15. They found Dale Clewell, 63, dead at the scene, KCRG-TV reported.

Deputies said Clewell was working on a field planter when a jack lifting it up moved, causing the equipment to fall on him and kill him.

An autopsy was scheduled at the state medical examiner’s office.
