The rural Colfax man who died after being pinned by his tractor tire was identified by the Dunn County Sheriff's Office.

The man was named as James Kiesow, 73. The sheriff's department previously incorrectly listed the victim's age as 76.

Kiesow was using a rotary mower with his tractor on his property near CTH A in the town of Colfax, Dunn County, when he was pinned under the small, older tractor. He was extricated and transported by helicopter to Mayo hospital in Eau Claire.

The incident was being investigated by the sheriff's office.
