Farmer Overcoming Horrific Harvest Accident with Positivity and Faith

The holidays and starting a new year is always a great time to reflect on life's lessons and count the reasons to be thankful. For one Indiana woman, it's a second chance to spend time with friends and family. 

Laurie Hayn lives and farms with her husband in Marshall County, Indiana. This past season, the avid hiker and mountain climber, faced a horrific accident on just their second day in the field. 

Laurie had climbed out of the tractor she was driving while pulling the grain cart. The combine driver didn't see her out in the field. When he did, it was too late. She lost an arm and a leg but says that God saved her life.

AgDay-TV Reporter Betsy Jibben and photojournalist Russ Hnatusko share her story in the video above.
