Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/14/2018
A southern Wisconsin boy who nearly lost his life when he was trampled by group of cattle at his family's farm near Livingston last month is finally home from the hospital. Tanner Kleist, who is 9 years old, had his liver split in half when the incident happened on
WISC-TV reports that 32 medical staff were in the operating room when Tanner was brought in for emergency surgery. He went through several other operations since that day and was able to be sent home last week.
The Iowa County Sheriff's Department said at the time that Kleist went into a pen to assist with a calf when the other animals ran him down. His 16-year-old sister was able to help him walk out of the pen and then called for help.
