A Soddy-Daisy man was killed Wednesday, August 21, in a “tragic accident” involving a hay baler, according to Bledsoe County Sheriff Jimmy Morris. The accident occurred off of Wooden Loop Road, just before Rigsby Gap Road.
Christopher Alex Mason, 30, was having trouble with the twine mechanism on his baler when he somehow got “hung up” in the machine, Sheriff Morris said.
Sheriff Morris said Mason’s father found him around 7:45 p.m.
