Manure hauler helps save hunter's life

Spreading manure on a Kewaunee County farm turned into a life-saving moment on Saturday. Julie Siegmund from Kewaunee says her manure hauler spotted a man wearing blaze orange face down in the woods while he was driving around waiting for the next field to get set up properly for spreading. The hunter was wearing a diabetic bracelet and his blood sugar was in the 30s when members from the Kewaunee County Sheriff's Department, Kewaunee Fire and Rescue, and others were able to pull him from the woods. Siegmund is happy the man had his guardian angels with him.

Siegmund says she has learned the hunter is doing better after getting treatment for his low blood sugar and hypothermia. She estimates he was in a diabetic coma for nearly eight hours before the manure hauler spotted him.
