Police said a man using heavy machinery to clear snow at a business in the region has died.

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office said the 40-year-old man was using a skid-steer loader to move snow yesterday morning near Bangor when he became trapped beneath its bucket.

Police said the man was working under the bucket area to clean snow from near machinery pedals when the bucket lowered onto him.

Co-workers freed him and performed CPR, but police said the man died at the scene from his injuries.

Sheriff Daniel Abbot called the man's death "an unfortunate incident dealing with a farm implement."

Police said the man died while clearing snow from his marijuana grow business, WNEM reports. His name hasn't been released.
