MAGNA, Utah (AP) -- A tractor flipped in Salt Lake County, crushing the man who was using it to pull a tree stump from the ground.

The Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened around 6:45 p.m. Friday. The 48-year-old man was pulling the stump, using the tractor and a chain when the tractor flipped over.

A sheriff's spokesman says it took two hours to lift the tractor off the man.

The man's name was not released.
