Two Dead in Grain Elevator Collapse

USSELL, Kan. (AP) -
Russell police 911 supervisor Greg Rose said part of one of the
Agco Inc. elevators collapsed Thursday afternoon. Russell is about
180 miles west of Topeka on Interstate 70.

Officials identified the victims as 21-year-old Max Greve, a
Fort Hays State University student from Nebraska, and 19-year-old
Sean Banks, a freshman outfielder for the Hutchinson Community
College baseball team.

After the elevator collapse, authorities closed nearby U.S. 281.
Crews used dump trucks and other heavy equipment to move the wheat in search of the missing workers. Their bodies were recovered about three hours later.
