LYMAN COUNTY - A 2-year-old boy from Howard died Monday in a farming accident, authorities said.

Jed Haak got trapped in a grain auger-conveyor in rural Lyman County before he was transported via ambulance to a Chamberlain hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

Authorities said the child’s family has a farm in Lyman County, between Kennebec and Presho.

An obituary on the Willoughby Funeral Home website says Jed “loved farming, particularly with his Dad, while riding in the tractor. Jed was a special little boy that was very happy and outgoing, especially to his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other relatives and friends.”

Funeral services are set for 11 a.m. Friday at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Howard.
