A 24-year-old man sustained ligament damage Tuesday after his hand became stuck in a corn picker at a township farm.

George Stash said his nephew, Aaron Stash, had been picking corn all week at the 330 Little Summit Road farm and was finishing up Tuesday when the incident occurred at 11:32 a.m. Aaron Stash was flown to Allegheny General Hospital for treatment and released later in the day, George Stash said.

“He was a very fortunate young man,” George Stash said, adding that the family is relieved.

His nephew did not have any broken bones, though his hand was swollen, he said. George Stash's mother owns the farm.
