Firefighters have recovered the body of a worker who became trapped inside a central Indiana grain elevator.

Town Council President Gary Shuck tells WTHR-TV in Indianapolis that the victim of Wednesday’s accident was 50-year-old Jim Leach.

Officials say the man fell into a three-story elevator at Farmers Grain in the Madison County town of Lapel. Several hours after arriving, crews tore a hole in the bin to drain thousands of bushels of soybeans. The body was recovered about 8:30 p.m. from the bottom of the bin.

Lapel Fire Chief Jeff Passwater said a shoe was found at the bottom of an auger, which is used to sort corn.
