Abilene, Kan. (KAKE) -- A 5-year-old Dickinson County girl was killed when she fell into a moving combine. The accident happened Wednesday evening in the north-central part of the county.

The girl is identified as Brooklyn Lee Debenham.

Dickinson County Sheriff Gareth Hoffman said the girl was riding in the combine with her father while he was cutting soybeans. The father told investigators the combine hit a bump, causing the windshield glass to break and fall out. Brooklyn fell through the window and into the machine.

The girl was pronounced dead at the scene.
