According to the Dewey County Sheriff’s Office, Schumacher apparently suffered a heart attack while he and his wife, Bernita, 70, were eastbound in a swather on a gravel road two miles south and 1/2 mile east of the Highway 20/63 junction west of Timber Lake when he slumped over in the driver’s seat. The swather ran into the ditch, and Bernita was thrown out of the vehicle. She was able to get to the road and call for help. She was transported by ambulance to Mobridge and later Aberdeen.
