THREE HEADED GIANT DIES NEAR WILTON, ND

6/3/09

A wind farm mishap has technicians trying to figure out what happened.

A blade on one of the giant towers near Wilton somehow bent in half on Sunday morning.

A spokesman for Next Air Energy Resources, the company that owns the Burleigh County farm, says crews will have to bring in a crane to take the blade down to determine the cause.

Steve Stengel says blades may occasionally have problems after things like lightning strikes, but that is the exception rather than the rule.

He says the machine is shut off until it can be repaired.
