A western Iowa man has died from injuries he suffered in a grain bin accident on Thursday afternoon. The Audubon County Sheriff’s Office reports 62-year-old Gary Glen Fancher, of Audubon, died at the scene of the accident in northern Audubon County.
Fancher had entered the bin to break the corn loose from above, while unloading the bin. Authorities say they received a 911 call just before 1 p.m. about a person being trapped in the grain bin. Audubon Fire and Rescue requested assistance from the Exira, Harlan and Atlantic Fire Departments.
After extensive extrication efforts, Fancher was removed from the grain bin and pronounced dead.
