Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 774570Event: 04/26/1995Employee Suffocates In Soybean Tank
At 3:00 p.m. on April 26, 1995, Employee #1 and a coworker were breaking up clumps of foreign matter inside a soybean storage tank with shovels. The floor conveyor transfer system had been energized. Employee #1 climbed atop the soybean pile, 6 to 8 ft high, to break up clumps. A flow of soybeans started where Employee #1 was standing, pulling him down toward the floor hole. The coworker tried to pull Employee #1 free, but the flow was too strong. He shut off the conveyor, returning to find Employee #1 buried in the soybeans. Efforts to extract Employee #1 by coworkers and others were not successful. He died.
