ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a Southern California man has died after being crushed by cows at a dairy farm in Ontario.

The San Bernardino County Coroner’s office says in a statement Sunday that 28-year-old Winston Perez died in a hospital after undergoing surgery for severe internal injuries.

The Riverside man was moving the cows into a paddock Saturday morning when he was crushed between a gate and the fence by the animals.

The name of the farm and other details on the circumstances of Perez’s death were not released.
