Ryan A. Nortz, 33, of 7621 East Road, Lowville, was taken by a medical helicopter to a Syracuse hospital Wednesday morning after getting caught in a piece of farm machinery at Robbins Farms, 17171 Fields Road, Hounsfield.

The hospital reported Mr. Nortz was in fair condition at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The accident happened at 11:37 a.m. in a field on the farm, according to state police. Mr. Nortz was injured by a power take-off shaft on a large agricultural shredder, a piece of farm machinery that has fast-moving parts. He was taken to Upstate Medical University with non-life-threatening injuries, police said, but they could not provide details.

Farm owner Ronald C. Robbins could not be reached for comment.
