A LaRue County dairy farmer whose farm was hit by a tornado in June lost his legs Thursday in a self-propelled silage chopper.
Gary Rock, who owns Rock Brothers Dairy Farm on Slack Road in Roanoke, was in a field cutting corn stocks when the self-propelled chopper apparently clogged, said Chris Loyall, Rock’s son-in-law and a firefighter at Radcliff Fire Department.
When Rock attempted to clear the jam, he was pulled into the chopper, which amputated one leg and “mangled” the other, Loyall said.
