Body still buried at collapsed Washington silo

Emergency workers plan to stabilize grain bins at a feed mill in Roy, Wash., where a worker was buried.

ROY, Wash. (AP) — Emergency responders hope to have a collapsed grain silo stabilized Wednesday so they can recover the body of a man who was buried under tons of corn when the structure gave way Monday in Roy, Wash.

Workers have been reinforcing two damaged silos that threaten to spill their grain at the scene where workers need to dig out the body.

The man in his 50s was an employee of Wilcox Farms. He was doing routine maintenance when the silo collapsed.

The grain silos mix chicken feed for the company that produces eggs sold throughout the Northwest.
