Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 695189Event: 02/03/1994Employee Killed When Buried In Corn Storage Facility
Employees were starting to remove last year's harvest of corn from a flat grain storage building and ship it out so that the building could be cleaned. A cover over the auger was plugged or clogged and would not allow the grain to flow. Employee #1, who was the facility's grain manager, decided to go into the storage area and dislodge the obstruction. The auger was not turned off or locked out. When Employee #1 broke up the clog the grain started to flow and Employee #1 was engulfed in approximately 20 ft of grain. He died.
