er24News24 reports that a man’s body was retrieved from a grain silo on a farm outside Springs on the East Rand on Tuesday morning.  

The body was that of a farmworker, who had been operating a conveyer belt along with a fellow farmworker at Rowan Feed farm.  “The other [worker] went outside and when he came [back], he heard screaming and noticed [his] co-worker sinking and went to stop the machine that operates the belt.  He called for help, paramedics and firefighters,” police said in a statement.  ER24’s Russel Meiring said when paramedics arrived they found that some of the workers had already begun to empty the silo of grain, where the man lay trapped.  Although emergency services managed to retrieve the body, the 28-year-old man succumbed to his injuries and was declared dead
