A LaRue County farmer has a long path to recovery after being caught in a self-propelled silage chopper last month.
Gary Rock was working in a field on Slack Road in Roanoke on the evening of Aug. 29. The chopper clogged with corn stalks and Rock apparently attempted to remove the clog by kicking at it. He was pulled into the cutter.
One leg was amputated at the scene. The other was removed at University Hospital.
He’s had several surgeries and will need more.
