Officials: 1 found dead after storage building wall collapse

Posted: Updated:

Officials say a worker who was engulfed by grain after a storage building wall collapsed in Michigan has been found dead.

Archer Daniels Midland says the contractor was found early Thursday following an all-night effort in Webberville. The Ingham County sheriff's department identifies him as 22-year-old Joshua McGhee of Petersburg, Michigan.

The wall collapsed about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday, trapping McGhee under a large pile of grain. Officials earlier said they accounted for all other workers.

Company spokeswoman Jackie Anderson says in a statement that safety "is a top priority at all of our facilities." The cause of the collapse is under investigation.

Chicago-based Archer Daniels Midland produces food ingredients, animal feeds and feed ingredients, biofuels and other products.
