Thats so horrible! I used to semi tank manure and one winter I watched a guy walk out on a lagoon with a chainsaw to cut a hole in the manure laden ice to get a lagoon pump in and befor he got the hole halfway cut he fell through but was close to the edge so he got out safely. Scarey deal those pits can be!

I saw that story this morning, too. Based on the names, I am guessing that there are black hats or black cars involved. I asked if any of my co-workers knew the family, but none did. Very sad.
Nothing cranks me like compression ignition.

Yes, conservative Mennonites. The recently posted video from WGAL shows all vehicles on the farm to be black in color.

Very true, 3088. Being a local, I guess that I was surprised at who the victims were and where they were located. The southern part of Lancaster County will not have as many conservative Mennonites, like the victims. They tend to be in the northern portion of the county. The Amish are more common in the southern part of the county. With the Amish population doubling in size every ten years or so, they are simply beginning to spread to where farms are being sold. Twenty years ago, Rt. 23 (which heads east of Lancaster) was joked about as being the Demarkation Zone. Literally,conservative Mennonites were on the north of Rt. 23 and Amish on the south. With both groups experiencing growing populations, they buy a farm when they become available. A farm is a farm whether in "enemy" territory or not.

This is sad to hear!... This is a very sad day for Pennsylvania, and the Amish/Mennonite. Just to day the neighbor who hires Amish kids to help on there dairy farm in Indiana County lost one amish boy (18) years old today. An almost lost his brother 14 years old too. The farm just filled silo (with haylage) yesterday the oldest boy climb up today to level, and lost his life to asphyxiation. The second boy climb up the outside ladder to help him, but he couldn't breath and was able to get out. Sad news today.

Prayers to all families.
