Hey! There's a man buried under a hay bale

PASCO – Franklin County deputies found a 50-year-old man buried beneath hay on a farm northeast of Pasco Monday.

Bales can weigh about 1,500 pounds.

At 5 a.m. deputies and the firefighters were able to dig him out. He was flown to a hospital for medical treatment, according to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office is investigating.
