A man was seriously injured at the Sycamore Steam Show and Threshing Bee this morning. His arm was caught in a piece of antique machinery: a Sycamore fire department spokesman describes the injury as serious, but not life-threatening. He was flown by helicopter to a trauma center in Rockford.
There was an ambulance company on site: they were able to free him and treat him until the helicopter arrived. He’s said to be in his early 30s. Meanwhile, the steam show has resumed.
