The boy was attempting to get into a skid steer loader by crawling between the bucket and the frame. The skid steer was not running, but was under hydraulic pressure. The child grabbed the control lever of the skid steer and was pinned between the hydraulic rams and the frame.

Becker County Deputies responded at around 6:30 PM; the child was pronounced dead at the scene.
