Man dies after being freed from northeast Nebraska grain bin

Authorities say a man died after getting trapped in a northeast Nebraska grain elevator.

Deputies and emergency crews were sent about 2:50 p.m. Tuesday to the scene about 5 miles east and a mile south of Hartington. The workers managed to free him, but he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Cedar County Sheriff’s Office identified him as 60-year-old Kelly Burbach, who lived in Coleridge. The sheriff’s office says he worked for Hansen Farms.
