YARMOUTH, Iowa (AP) — Crews continued to go looking Wednesday for a person lacking beneath piles of grain and particles from a collapsed grain silo in southeastern Iowa.

The collapse occurred simply earlier than 8 a.m. Tuesday at a grain elevator at Yarmouth, officers reported. Two males had simply unloaded a semitrailer filled with grain right into a holding shed on the elevator once they heard a loud bang and started working from the power because the silo partially collapsed, Mediapolis Fireplace Division Deputy Chief Jeff Kerr instructed the Hawk Eye.

“The one made it out, and he rotated and the opposite man wasn’t with him,” Kerr stated.

A Des Moines County sheriff’s dispatcher who answered the cellphone Wednesday morning stated the person was nonetheless lacking beneath the grain and particles. The person’s title was not instantly launched.

Almost 60 emergency responders, contractors and towing crew members responded to the scene to fastidiously take away the particles in an effort to succeed in the person.
