The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office and Public Safety Department reported the tragic death Tuesday evening of 10-year-old Wilferd Campbell.

The boy was helping his father and some others load hay onto a trailer being pulled by a tractor, DCSO said. The family has a dairy operation off Third Bunker. According to DCSO, the boy apparently got tangled in some long grass and slipped under the wheels of the trailer, which was heavily loaded with bales of hay.
