ALBION, Neb. (AP) - The body of a 79-year-old man has been recovered from a grain bin of corn northwest of the Boone County town of Albion.

Boone County Sheriff Denny Johnson says his office was notified about the situation Thursday afternoon after a neighbor noticed that corn being taken from the bin was spilling out of a grain truck and that the truck driver didn’t seem to be around.

Johnson says Edwin Karel, of Albion, apparently became trapped after entering the bin to loosen corn that wasn’t feeding into the auger.
