From Joe Milner,

One man is dead and another in a hospital.. after an accident while they were hunting this afternoon.

It happened just before three in Daviess County.

The sheriff’s office says that 40 year old Mervin Knepp of Montgomery, Indiana and 18 year Lavon Wagler of Plainville were coyote hunting.

That’s when their hunting dogs ran a coyote into an oil well pump housing.

The two men went to the machinery to retrieve the dogs when the pump started running.

Wagler was taken to the hospital for surgery on his leg.

Knepp was pronounced dead at the hospital.
