Rural Maxwell Woman Killed in Apparent Farming Accident


A rural Maxwell woman has died in what appears to have been a farming accident over the weekend.

Authorities say 52-year-old Heidi Craig was pronounced dead at the scene when deputies and medics arrived at the farm south of Maxwell just after 10 p.m. Saturday.

Lincoln County authorities were called to the farm on a report that a woman was trapped under a large, round hay bale inside her barn. By the time they arrived the woman's husband had already gotten the hay bale off her body.

An autopsy has been ordered.
