Man dies after being run over by a combine

Posted: Updated:

CADDO COUNTY, Okla._A family is mourning the loss of a man who they say died doing what he loved...helping others.

Floyd Melvin Etter Jr., 56, was helping a friend on his farm in Caddo County between Fletcher and Cyril when he was mortally wounded. The family says around 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday he was testing the moisture in the ground when he was accidentally run over by a combine. Etter was flown by helicopter to the hospital, but doctors were unable to save his life.

Family members say they will always remember him as a hard worker and a man who would do anything to help anybody.
