ORLEANS — A member of the Amish community in southern Indiana's Orange County has died after falling onto a moving saw blade.

Witnesses tell the Orange County Sheriff's Department that 23-year-old Jacob Stutzman slipped and landed on the moving blade Monday afternoon.

The Bedford Times-Mail reports Orange County Coroner Aaron Kemple pronounced Stutzman dead at the scene of the accident near the town of Orleans, about 50 miles northwest of Louisville, Ky.
