An inquest into the death of a farmer last year found he died after being trapped inside a baling machine.
Norman Smith, from Brook House Farm, Shropshire was found by a neighbour trapped in the machine on September 26, 2015.
It is believed the 66-year-old had been fixing some seized bearings in the machine when the tailgate slammed shut, trapping him inside.
Coroner, John Ellery heard Mr Smith, who farmed the land with his brother David, was trapped for more than seven hours.
Mr Smith was alive when he was found by his neighbour, Stephen Keating, who noticed something was wrong when he spotted Mr Smith’s cattle had not been brought down to the cow shed in the early evening.
Mr Keating switched the tractor off and called for an ambulance.
Mr Smith was released from the baler when the emergency services arrived, where he then suffered a cardiac arrest.
He was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham where he died on September 28, 2015.
Cause of death was determined as a cardiac arrest due to crush injuries.
