Minnesota boy, 9, dies in farm accident


A northern Minnesota community is mourning the loss of a 9-year-old boy after he died on his family’s farm Sunday.

According to the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, Marshall Bader was pinned under the arms of a skid steer loader and was pronounced dead at the scene.

His funeral will take place on Jan. 26 and those in the community are encouraged to leave hockey sticks outside their homes to honor Marshall, an avid hockey player.

“Marshall loved the sport of hockey and this hockey community. We are so thankful for the outpouring of love and support from everyone in GRAHA and the Grand Rapids community during this extremely difficult time,” his mother Megan wrote on Facebook.
