Town helps in rescue of man trapped under tractor
HOPE, N.D. — One thing was on LeRoy Richards’ mind when he was waiting for help while lying at the bottom of a pit with an overturned 5,800-pound tractor on top of him.
“The first thing was, he was going to fill that pit in” when he got out, said his wife Cindy.
Leroy Richards was hauling a load of weeds to a garbage pit a quarter of a mile away from his home near Hope on Nov. 9. The tractor got a little too close to the edge and flipped, dumping Richards and pinning him.
