Irene Teen Dies in Skid-steer Loader Accident
IRENE - Officials in the Irene-Wakonda school system have called off classes Wednesday to enable students to attend the funeral of a 14-year-old boy from Irene who died in a weekend accident in rural Yankton County.
The sheriff's office tells the Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan newspaper that Zavier Larsen was riding in the bucket of a skid-steer loader and somehow ended up underneath the bucket on Saturday. Further details were not immediately released.
The boy's funeral is Wednesday morning at Calvary Lutheran Church in Irene.
