Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14402648Event: 10/27/1987Employee Suffocates In Grain Storage Bin
At about 2:00 p.m. on October 27, 1987, Employee #1 and a coworker were inside a round storage tank attempting to unplug an auger at the bottom of the tank. They were using an approximately 10 ft long plastic pipe to push down through the 7 or 8 ft of corn to where the auger was running. As the corn started to flow rapidly, Employee #1 was pulled under. He died of suffocation; his coworker escaped without injury. Neither employee was wearing a safety harness or using a safety line.
