Two incidents at northeast Iowa farm coops have left one man injured and another dead. Firefighters called to the Winneshiek Co-op in Cresco Wednesday afternoon found 49-year-old Joseph Brannan of Waucoma had fallen into a grain bin and was trapped. He suffocated and was pronounced dead after they’d removed him from the bin. At the Fredericksburg Co-op, an man was reported on fire after an explosion. 33-year-old Chuck Stanton of New Hampton had been doing some electrical work in a building owned by the co-op when it happened, and suffered burns to his hands and face. He was airlifted to University hospitals in Iowa City.
