(Richmond, IN)--There was a fatal accident at the Purina plant in Richmond Tuesday afternoon. The initial report indicates that a 23-year-old man fell about 50 feet in a silo area. There were no witnesses to the fall, so investigators were unclear exactly how it happened or what the man was doing. He was discovered by co-workers and died in route to Reid Health.
