Two Boys Die in Farming Accident

Two young brothers died yesterday in a farm accident in McLennan, 160 kilometres northeast of Grande Prairie.

The boys, aged 5 and 7, were playing on top of a grain trailer when the hopper was activated, pulling the brothers under the grain. The boys were trapped under the grain for between 5 and 10 minutes before they were rescued. Attempts to resuscitate the children at the scene were unsuccessful.

Their names have not been released.
