Freak accident leaves Sturgis man with 15 broken bones, friend looks to help

Posted:

A Sturgis man is in the Intensive Care Unit at Rapid City Regional Hospital after he became entangled and completely mangled by a power take off unit attached to the back of a tractor. 

On Jan. 28 Jed Hall was grinding corn at his work place, Leber Ag in Vale, when he got caught in the machine.  When he was found, he was still conscious but had 15 broken bones, internal bruising and other injuries. 

According to his wife, Helen Hall, Jed remains in a medically induced coma.

With medical bills piling up, Jed Hall's close friend, Colin Duprell decided to help out. He has started a fund with a goal of $50,000.  Just a few days into the effort, Duprell has managed to raise more than $23,000. Click here to see how you can help: www.gofundme.com/letsfixjed

Helen hall says Jed is expected to recover but there's a long road ahead.  She is grateful to have such a great support system through this time.

"It's really been awesome to see the outpouring of love and encouragement and everyone just cheering Jed on. The love is just amazing," said Helen Hall.
