GENOA, Ill. -- A northern Illinois man is dead Monday night after getting stuck in a grain bin.

Crews started frantically emptying the grain bin after reports that the 73-year-old may be stuck inside.

After hours of looking, the man's body was found inside the grain bin.

Dekalb county police say a family member found the man's truck next to the grain bin, but he
was no where to be found.

The bin was reportedly clogged, and he may have been inside trying to fix it.
