Celebrate Summer But Do it Safely
It’s summer! Time for the backyard barbecue, fireworks and fun in the sun. If you’re planning to host a day of summertime activities with family and friends, remember to work a little safety into the event, too.
Death by Strangulation

The fatality occurred while the 53-year-old victim was in the feed shed adding cracked corn to ground corn that was then taken by conveyor belt to the outside feed bunk and a herd of 182 beef cattle.
