A man died Tuesday morning after becoming trapped in a grain bin five miles east of Le Mars, IA, reports the Des Moines Register.

Daniel Cronin, 65, had been loosening stuck corn when he became trapped.

Even though there were safety measures in place, he sank into the corn when the crust broke, the sheriff’s office said.

Cronin had died by the time his body was recovered about an hour after rescuers arrived.
