Farmworker dies after pushing co-worker to safety

YUMA, Ariz. — Authorities say an Arizona farmworker was fatally injured
when she was run over by farm equipment after pushing another woman out of the
way.

The Yuma County Sheriff’s Office says 60-year-old Ana Maria Barrera-Bogarin of
San Luis was walking with another worker during a break Tuesday when they
realized that a tractor pulling a produce trailer was backing up toward them.

According to the Yuma Sun, the women tried to run out
of the way before Barrera-Bogarin pushed the other woman out from behind the
trailer.

However, she was knocked to the ground by the trailer and run over.

Barrera-Bogarin was pronounced dead at a Yuma hospital.
