  • A grain bin accident has killed a southeastern North Dakota farmer.
    Logan County Chief Deputy Sheriff and Coroner Steve Engelhardt says 39-year-old Charles Sperle died in the yard of his farm near Napoleon on Monday afternoon when corn broke loose from a grain bin he was unloading and covered him.
    Engelhardt tells The Bismarck Tribune that at one point there were about 20 people working with shovels to try to rescue Sperle but that the corn "was coming out like a waterfall."
    Funeral arrangements are pending.
