We now know the name of a man who died Sunday after being pinned between parts of his skidloader.

State Police say Kevin Doktor, 54, of Pembroke was trying to free a piece of farm equipment from the mud when he became pinned between the bucket and the machine.

It happened shortly after four o'clock. They say he was found by his son and a neighbor.

"We heard the son was with him, he had gotten the skid loader stuck. The son had gone back to the house to get another piece of equipment he told his mother to help him remove it," said assistant East Pembroke fire chief Stephen Smelski. "And then when he came back was when him and another neighbor discovered the gentleman at the same time."

The man died before Mercy Flight was able to get there.
