Illinois man buried in corn, dies inside farm's grain bin


MORRISONVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A central Illinois man has died after becoming buried in corn while working inside a farm's grain bin.

Sixty-one-year-old David L. Lowis was pronounced dead at the scene Monday morning at a farm in rural Morrisonville.

Christian County Coroner Amy Calvert Winans says first responders had to cut a hole in the grain bin to get to Lowis, but he died after being submerged in corn.

WCIA-TV reports that an autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday on the Taylorville man.
