Farmer Expected to Make Full Recovery After Accident Left Him Injured, Naked
Posted Tuesday, January 21st 2014 @ 4am  by WOOD Radio News Team

A Holland man is now known as "the naked farmer" after a life-threatening farming accident left him without clothes, hurt and needing help.

WOOD TV reports Tim VanderZwaag slipped on cornstalks and fell into the power take-off shaft, ripping his clothes off, fracturing four ribs and dislocating his hip leaving him injured in freezing December temperatures.

VanderZwaag crawled on his tractor and began to drive down the road and eventually flagged down a truck.

He was rushed to the hospital. He is now in rehab but is expected to make a full recovery. He and his wife don't mind his new nickname "the naked farmer" -- they're just glad he's alive.
