A 44-year-old farmhand from Keeseekoowenin First Nation has died after becoming caught in a box of a grain truck.
RCMP say the man was working on a farm near Sandy Lake, Manitoba on Thursday morning when the accident occurred.
The man was unloading the grain when he began sinking into it. Attempts were made to pull him out, but were unsuccessful. He was freed once the chute was open, where he was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Police say the man succumbed to those injuries on Sunday.
His name isn’t being released and Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health are assisting with the investigation.
