At approximately 2:00 p.m. on June 24, 2010, Employees #1 and #2 were working at a truck loading facility. The facility specialized in the distribution of wheat through trucks. As Employee #2 checked with Employee #1, to see if he needed a break, three bins located on the south side of the facility ruptured/opened up and wheat spilled out onto the truck dump area. Employees #1 and #2 were engulfed by the wheat, as well as the structure's debris, and died due to asphyxiation. Approximately three hours later the bodies of Employees #1 and #2 were recovered from underneath a semi-truck, which had been at the dumping site.
