Authorities say a 6-year-old Amish boy has been killed in a Centre County farm accident.

Officials say it happened as Jacob Stoltzfus of Spring Mills was helping his father with a machine that wraps hay bales Tuesday afternoon.

State police at Rockview say the boy's head was caught in a part of the machinery that compacts the hay.

Coroner Scott Sayers says the boy died instantly of massive head trauma. The death has been ruled an accident.
