Two victims of a farm accident have been identified by Douglas County officials.
49-year-old Steven Timothy Boesl, of rural Millerville, and his brother, 47-year-old Curt Francis Boesl, of Brandon died early Sunday morning, after being recovered from inside a silo near Millerville, in Douglas County, Saturday morning.
Deputies learned that Curt Boesl and his son were working in the top of the silo and were apparently overcome by fumes. Another son was outside the silo, observed what happened and called 9-1-1. The son also called his uncle Steven, who lived nearby. The uncle arrived on scene and entered the top of the silo to extricate the father and son. The uncle was then apparently overcome by fumes.
The Millerville Fire Dept and First Responders were able to extricate the three victims from inside the top of the silo and began resuscitation efforts. The son was flown to Minneapolis Childrens Hosptial, where he is listed in serious condition.
