FARM ACCIDENT CLAIMS LIFE OF STAUNTON MAN

 

A farm accident claimed the life of a Staunton man on Sunday.  According to the Madison County Sheriff’s department, 50 year old Herbert Braundmeier of Staunton, was cutting corn with another farmer in Alhambra just before noon on Sunday.  They were unloading corn from a combine into a grain truck.  The farmer, who was not named in the press release, shifted the combine into reverse to shift the load of corn, and did not know that Braundmeier had stepped behind the combine.  Braundmeier suffered a fatal head injury from being struck by the combine and was pronounced dead at the scene.  The Madison County Sheriff’s department said nothing suspicious has been determined and this appears to be a tragic accident.

FIRE SAFETY FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS

 

Thousands of college students are moving into dorms and off-campus housing at colleges and universities across the country.  The National Fire Prevention Association urges parents and students to take time to review life-saving fire safety information and plan escape routes for your room or house.  The leading cause of campus fires is cooking, with cooking equipment involved in 75 percent of reported dormitory fires.  Other causes of college housing fires include smoking, candles, and electrical wiring or overloads.  Review campus rules concerning fire safety precautions and follow guidelines related to cooking, candles, and smoking on campus.  Take special precautions not to overload the electrical service for your room.  For more information on campus fire safety, visit the NFPA’s website at www.nfpa.org.
