FREEPORT -- A 37-year-old Freeport man was pronounced dead at Melrose Hospital after he was pinned underneath a tractor around 8:45 p.m. Sunday.

According to the Stearns County Sheriff's office, Anthony Elmer Janke was clearing snow from his driveway with an International 656 tractor. The tractor became stuck in the ditch. When a neighbor attempted to free the tractor, a wheel broke off and caused it to roll further into the ditch, trapping Janke underneath.
