N.D. man crawls 200 feet for help after 1,500-pound hay bale falls on him
ORISKA, N.D. - A rural Oriska man is recovering in a Fargo hospital after a hay bale that weighed nearly 1,500 pounds fell on him.
Michelle Stubstad says her husband, Neil, was taking feed to horses late Friday afternoon when the bale fell off the loader. She says he became wedged between the loader and the bale but man-aged to free himself and crawl about 200 feet to the farmhouse to get help. The distance he crawled is about two-thirds of a football field.
