Update: Sheboygan County man dead due to accident inside barn

by

TOWN OF MITCHELL, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan County man died on Tuesday as the result of a freak  farm accident.  Captain Dave Adams of the Sheriff’s Department said 60 year old Douglas Orzechowski was digging a three foot hole inside of his barn on County W in the town of Mitchell about 4:30 Tuesday afternoon when he apparently fell in.  Authorities said Orzechowski was digging the hole to work on a water pipe and was reaching down into it to work on the pipe when he fell in head-first and couldn’t back out of the hole which narrowed at the bottom.  The Coroner’s office has ruled that Orzechowski died of accidental positional asphyxiation.
