A worker at the Prairie Queen wind farm in northern Allen County was injured Saturday after falling into one of the wind turbine’s blades.

Daren Kellerman with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department said the worker, whose name was not released, suffered “non-life-threatening injuries” in the accident.

The 22-year-old worker was part of a three-man crew inside a small cell within the turbine’s hub, about 275 feet in the air, when he fell an undetermined distance into one of the three attached hollow blades.
