HARTINGTON — A 6-yearold Holy Trinity kindergarten student died after an ATV accident near his home southwest of Hartington Saturday morning.
Cedar County Sheriff Larry Koranda said his office responded to a call about 10:50 a.m. after a four-wheel allterrain vehicle had driven over an embankment.
It had flipped on top of the driver, 6-year-old Porter Noecker, son of Jesse and Marie Noecker.
Noecker was transported to Avera Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton, where he was pronounced dead.
Mass of Christian burial will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 15, at 3 p.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Hartington, with the Rev. Owen Korte officiating.
