A worker at a Shakopee malting company died after falling into a grain bin Monday.
The death was reported around 9:15 p.m. at the Rahr Malting Company at 800 W. 1st Av. Officers were called by employees to the plant and found the man dead, said Sgt. Jamie Pearson.
Police on Tuesday said the 58-year-old man was from South St. Paul.
They also said the death appears to be accidental. Nobody saw the fall, and it was not known how long the man had been in the bin before he was found by co-workers. His name has not been released, and the Hennepin County medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death, police said.
