Noble County man pinned by equipment dies

A 72-year-old man died in Noble County on Thursday night after being pinned between a pan scraper excavator and a trailer, the Noble County sheriff's department said today.

Phillip A. Longsworth was attempting to remove a strap holding the excavator on the trailer about 6:45 p.m., the sheriff's department said in a statement.

After releasing the tension on the strap, the excavator rolled, causing Longworth to be pinned, the statement said. He died at the scene of the incident near Avilla.
