The Yellow Medicine County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man who died in a grain bin accident Tuesday. Jonah C. Dovre, age 26, of Porter, formerly of Cottonwood, passed away at his farm near Porter.

On June 20, at around 9:28 a.m., the Yellow Medicine County Sheriff’s Office got a call saying two individuals were trapped in a grain bin northeast of Porter, in Yellow Medicine County.

When first responders arrived, a 62-year-old male had freed himself from the grain bin. However, Dovre was still trapped inside.  Rescue personnel worked for about an hour removing the grain from the bin before Dovre was located. Life-saving efforts were not successful.

The older victim was transported to the Sanford Canby Hospital and later released.
