It was mid-July when a man had to be rescued from a combine auger in the Dawn area. He was taken to Carroll County Memorial Hospital.

The victim was later identified as Kyle Persinger, 23. He announced on social media that he broke his leg after he “slipped into the auger of a combine.” He was released from the hospital later that day.

Persinger reports he had to have surgery, and has a plate and screw in his ankle, but is now back to normal.
