PLEASANT HOPE, Mo. -- A farmer died on Thursday afternoon after his tractor fell on top of him in a field.  Emergency medical responders said Kent Redd, 61, was pulling a steel post out of the ground when the tractor tipped over.

The accident was on Redd's property near the intersection of Highway KK at Highway H just north of Pleasant Hope.  The accident especially affected the medical responders because Redd was a volunteer for the Pleasant Hope Fire Department.
