Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 14415855Event: 11/28/1995Employee Dies Of Suffocation In Cotton Seed Bin
A semi-truck was being unloaded when the bin-full alarm went off at the control station. The controller stated that when the alarm goes off there is usually about 3 ft remaining in the bin to be filled. Because the semi-truck still had cotton seed to be unloaded, the controller requested Employee #1 to go to the head house, verify how much more cotton seed the bin would take, and let him know, which he did via radio. After some time passed, coworkers realized that Employee #1 was missing. A search of the facility turned up nothing. A crew went to Employee #1's last known location and started searching again. After some time had passed, they decided to drain the bin. Employee #1 came out with the cotton seed. He had died of asphyxiation.
