A grain bin accident Tuesday night has claimed the life of a Plymouth County farmer.

Fire and rescue units were dispatched to 44787 230th Street, about six miles south of Remsen at 7:21 p.m.

The Plymouth County Sheriff says 65-year-old Lee Grage of rural Remsen died in the accident.

Emergency responders spent more than three hours recovering the victim’s body from the 40 foot grain bin that was filled with corn.

One of the responding firefighters was transported to the hospital for heat exhaustion.
