A 5-year-old girl was killed in a farm accident Wednesday afternoon in northern Dickinson County.
According to Dickinson County Sheriff Gareth Hoffman, Brooklyn Lee Debenham was killed in a combine accident.
Hoffman said the death is still under investigation. He said the driver of the combine cutting soybeans recalled a bump or bounce. The front glass of the enclosed cab of the combine shattered and the girl fell into the machine.
The accident occurred about 5 p.m. near the intersection of 3400 Avenue and Key Road north of Abilene.
She is the daughter of Brian and Chantell Debenham.
Hoffman said several rescue units responded to the call: Kansas Highway Patrol, sheriff’s deputies, Enterprise rescue, Abilene recue and Lifestar.
