HARTFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Police have identified the man who was killed after being buried beneath cattle feed on a dairy farm in southwestern Michigan.
The Van Buren County Sheriff's office says the man was 35-year-old John Garth Cummings of Middleville.
Authorities say a 30-foot-high corn silage stack, containing high-fermented, high-moisture food fed to cattle, broke loose at about 6:30 a.m. Friday, burying Cummings.
The sheriff's office says Cummings was a subcontractor for a Grand Rapids company that was at the Red Arrow dairy farm at 66932 County Road 362 near 67th Street to conduct testing.
Another worker found Cummings. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The incident is being investigated by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
