A man has been rescued from beneath a tractor after an accident in southeast Nebraska.

Firefighters were dispatched around 5 p.m. to an address south of Hickman.

The tractor had been pushing dirt into a ravine when the tractor tipped over, trapping the man.

Hickman Fire Chief Stan Draper says it took about 30 minutes to cut off the tractor steering wheel and dig away some dirt so the man could be freed.

The man was flown to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. His name hasn't been released.
