TOWN OF WALES, NY - A man and his seven-year-old grandson died when the tractor they were on flipped over Sunday morning, an Erie County Sheriff's Office deputy tells 2 On Your Side.

John Rutkowski, 56, was trying to pull a small tree out of the ground at his home at 13696 Schang Road using a chain. Something went terribly wrong and the tractor flipped over backwards, trapping Rutkowski and his seven-year-old grandson underneath.

Rutkowski's wife, who was home with another grandchild at the time, called 911. It was 11:32 a.m.

Erie County Sheriff's Office Captain Ron Kenyon told media that neighbors helped move the tractor before sheriff's deputies arrived.
