At approximately 7:00 p.m., a coworker underneath the hole at the bottom of the bin saw a body appear in the opening. The coworkers called for an ambulance and the rescue squad arrived in about 10 minutes. The rescue squad cut through the metal bin with a chain saw and removed Employee #1's body at 9:00 p.m.
