Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A 58-year-old worker who fell into a Kankakee County grain bin has died. The accident occurred Wednesday just before noon at the Whitaker grain elevator near Manteno.  Chester Cleveland, who worked for Whitaker Grain for 40 years, was working to clean out the grain bin when he fell in. Manteno Fire Chief Scott O’Brien said Cleveland fell between 70-75 feet down the bin. The fire district received a call of a person in the grain bin at around 11:15 a.m. When crews arrived, two people were found inside the grain bin. The second employee fell in while trying to assist. Firefighters were able to retrieve the second employee.

Rescue crews were on the scene all afternoon.
