Turon, Kan. -- A Reno County teenager was taken by Lifeteam helicopter to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita following an accident Sunday morning.

It happened around 9 a.m., a half-mile west of Langdon Road on Parallel Road. The Reno County Sheriff's Office says three teens were in a field, using a skid steer to do fence work on the property.

Two of the teens were riding on the stump remover at the front when they began to ride into mud. One of the teens asked the driver to raise up the arms of the skid steer to to avoid the mud and water.

Deputies say 16-year-old Kolton Russell Kincaid became pinned when his shoulder got caught on the roof of the skid steer and began to compress him. The driver quickly lowered the arms, but Kincaid was unable to move once the arms were down.

The sheriff's office says the teen reported not having any sensation from the waist down and having a hard time breathing when he was transported to the hospital. None of the other teens were hurt.

The accident is still under investigation.
