Man injured by electric line contact in May dies

WILLMAR — The man who was injured when his bucket lift came into contact with an electrical line while trimming trees in Clarkfield on May 24 has died.

A memorial service for Bradley Kneisl, 31, of Paynesville, will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at the Living Hope Evangelical Free Church, Willmar.

Kneisl died Nov. 23 near Baldwin, Wisconsin, from complications of the May 24 accident, according to his obituary with the Harvey Anderson Funeral Home, Willmar.

A native of Kerkhoven, Kneisl had started his own tree-trimming service, Brad’s Tree Service, in 2018.


At the time of the accident, emergency responders rendered aid to Kneisl when the power was turned off and he was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. The family reported on its GoFundMe page that he had suffered a pulmonary embolism on the afternoon of Nov. 23.

He is survived by his wife, Kelsey, and their two-year-old daughter, Braelyn.
