The accident happened on Saturday afternoon during a village festival in Schänis.

Police say the boy was with his mother feeding cows in the stable and climbed onto a hay stack to switch off the feed mixer. He fell into the machine.

Local authorities cancelled the weekend event. One councilor says it’s a very close knit community and everyone is shocked.

The boy’s family is receiving psychiatric support.
