All it takes is a split second for a simple job on the farm to turn deadly. Russell Skaggs knows this all too well.
Skaggs' father, Calvin, was killed on Aug. 7, 1992, in a farm incident.
The skies that day were overcast, Skaggs said. Rain was on the way and Skaggs' father was trying to finish up.
But his tractor couldn't handle the heavy load he was pulling. It jackknifed and the load pushed it over a hill. The tractor overturned, pinning Calvin underneath. He was pronounced dead shortly after.
