A southwest Iowa farmer died inside a grain bin Tuesday night. Fire and rescue crews were called at about 6:15 last night to a report of a man trapped in a grain bin on a farm outside Oakland.
Authorities said 69-year-old Donald Hering of Oakland had been outside when those around couldn’t find him. The crews worked on cutting holes and pulling panels from the side of the bin to get to Hering. The emergency crew found the man inside and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
