UPDATE: Seneca Falls man airlifted after barn collapse in Ontario County

The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office has provided an update on the barn collapse on Stafford Road in Manchester this morning.

It happened around 7:50 a.m. and those injured were from Seneca, Ontario, and Wayne counties.

Deputies were called to the scene with Shortsville Ambulance, Fingerlakes Ambulance, Shortsville Fire Department, Manchester Fire Department, and Mercy Flight for the report of a barn that had collapsed on several people.

It happened at 536 Stafford Road in Manchester. The homeowners were identified as Danny and Margaret Kelly. Deputies say they contracted to have an old barn taken down in order for the contractor to relocate the structure in another county.

Upon arrival, first responders say that four people were under the structure when it collapsed, and that one person was still trapped.

That individual was identified as Craig Partee, 49, of Seneca Falls. He was pinned under the structure for 60 minutes and flown to Strong Memorial Hospital by Mercy Flight.

Jeffrey Mashewske, 52, of Newark was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for a head laceration and back pain. Anthony Mashewske, 22, of Newark was transported to Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua for injuries to his right arm.

Nicholas McCann, 20, of Waterloo was checked at the scene for minor injuries and released.

Deputies say Stafford Road was closed for about two hours after the incident.
