WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) — A Waverly man was killed in an apparent farming accident north of Waverly, law enforcement officials said.
Bremer County Sheriff’s deputies said deputies were called to a field north of Waverly for a medical emergency on Thursday. They found Dale Clewell, 63, dead at the scene, KCRG-TV reported.
