Eldora Farmer Killed After Being Buried By Grain


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa farmer died Wednesday after being buried under seven feet of grain, authorities said.

Kennerly Reece, 79, of Eldora, Iowa, was working on his farm around 12:30 p.m. when the door of a grain bin slid open, burying him as it flowed out of the bin, the Des Moines Register reported.

Hardin County Sheriff Dave McDaniel said authorities do not know how the door opened or how exactly Reece became trapped under several hundred bushels of grain.
