A man died after he was trapped under a tractor that flipped over Sunday afternoon in west suburban Geneva.
Joel Bork, 47, was operating a lightweight front-loader tractor on his family’s farm in the 32W600 block of Fabyan Parkway in unincorporated Geneva when the tractor flipped over, trapping him underneath, according to a statement from the Kane County Sheriff’s office.
Family members became worried after a few hours and began to look for him, according to the sheriff’s office. They found him under the tractor and called 911.
Bork, of the 1400 block of Getzelman Road in Elgin, was dead at the scene, according to the sheriff’s office.
