May 17th at approximately 9 PM the Bates County Coroner was called to the Bates County Memorial Hospital Emergency Department. BCMH EMS had responded to a rural Amsterdam address earlier in the evening on a report of injuries to a person in a farming accident.
The decedent is identified as Phillip Armentrout, 71 of Amsterdam. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
The information has been provided by Greg D. Mullinax Bates County Coroner
