Greene County Sheriff’s investigators say a 17-year-old boy was found dead on farm Saturday near the Polk-Greene County line.

Tristen England was found dead, slumped over on a tractor.  England and a friend had been mowing a field Saturday afternoon. The friend noticed he had been injured by equipment that became loose from the tractor.  Greene County deputies attempted CPR on the boy but were unsuccessful.

“This is a tragic accident where a young life was lost,” stated Sheriff Jim Arnott. “Our prayers and hearts are extended to this young man’s family and friends during this very difficult time.”

The investigation is still on-going.
