LEBANON, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut farm worker has died after a pile of milled corn collapsed on him.

Police say the collapse happened when 54-year-old Donald Merchant, of South Windham, was using equipment to move corn from a large mound at the Square A Farm on Monday. When he got off the equipment, some of it toppled onto him.

Merchant was found unresponsive by other farm workers, who dug him out. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly before 5:30 p.m.
