Osseo Rural Fire Department Chief and Automotive dealer Nels Gunderson was seriously injured Sunday afternoon in a rototiller accident.
According to reports this morning, Gunderson's right leg had to be amputated about 4 inches below the knee at St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, Minn., where he is recovering.
Initial reports indicate Gunderson stepped onto ground that already had been tilled and was pulled into the running machine. A relative with him called for emergency officials, and Gunderson was flown to Rochester.
Reports Monday indicated Gunderson faced additional surgery today.
