Unadilla, Neb. —  Authorities say a man died in southeast Nebraska’s Otoe County after climbing into a grain bin to clear a jammed auger.

Rescue workers and medics were called to the farm northeast of Unadilla round 2:45 p.m. Saturday. The Otoe County Sheriff’s Office says rescue workers cut into the bin to reach the man, but they were too late. He was declared dead at the site.

The name of the 69-year-old Nebraska City man hasn’t been released. An autopsy was ordered.
