Dairy farmer Gary Rock said a fundraiser to assist him with medical bills was “a gift beyond belief.”
Rock, who lost his legs in a farming accident Aug. 26, requested the total amount raised not be published.
“I prefer it be told ‘word of mouth,’” he said.
Rock was in a field using a self-propelled chopper to cut corn stalks. The chopper, which uses a belt to pull the stalks into the cutter, jammed. He attempted to clear the jam with his foot, without shutting off the chopper. The mechanism amputated one leg, then the other.
