TURNER, Maine — A 19-year-old Turner man has died after he fell into a manure pit at his family’s farm Monday morning.

The Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Department said Roy Varney was cleaning out the cattle barn at Nezinscot Farm with a skid-steer when he got too close to the edge of the manure pit and fell in.

Varney was pulled from the pit and taken to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

The farm posted on its Facebook page Tuesday afternoon that Varney had died.

Officials said Varney is the son of the farm’s owner.
