GAINES, N.Y. (WHEC) — An Orleans County man is dead after deputies say a tractor flipped over, pinning him.
Deputies received the call on Thursday at around 3:15 p.m.

The man's son found him and with the help of two neighbors, was able to lift the machine and pull his father out. Deputies say he attempted CPR to no avail.
Manning was pronounced dead at the scene.
