Summary Nr: 14504914Event: 06/16/1987Employee Killed After Falling Into Grain Bin
Employee #1 and coworkers were trying to free up grain that had formed chunks, preventing it from flowing freely. He entered the grain bin while coworkers used a Vac-u-lutor to vacuum the grain from the bin. 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.
