ETNA GREEN â€” A 13-year-old Etna Green boy lost his life Saturday morning as a result of a tragic accident that took place on his familyâ€™s farm.
Wyman Lynn Miller, an eighth grade student at Triton Jr.-Sr. High School, went out at about 6 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 28 to gather 14 horses, most of them Belgian Draft horses, from a wooded area behind the family farm at 8409 West, CR 750 North to send them back to the barn to be fed.
He brought back four of them but when he didnâ€™t return with more, his brothers went to look for him and found him unconcious.
