CAYUGA, N.D. - A 1-year-old boy died near here Wednesday evening after falling from a moving tractor.

Wesley Levi Manikowski fell from the cab of the tractor at 7:41 p.m. while riding with his 4-year-old brother and his father, Michael Mogren, Lidgerwood, who was out seeding cover crop, according to a release from Sargent County Sheriff Travis Paeper.

Wesley, who would've turned 2 in August, was taken to Oakes Hospital where he was pronounced dead, the release said.

Paeper called the incident a "farming accident," but said it remains under investigation.

An autopsy was scheduled today in Bismarck, the release said.
