Death at farm as man is buried by grain
At approximately 4:45 pm, emergency services were called to the site in Marieville, about 30 kilometres southeast of Montreal.

The victim, a man in his 60s, was discovered by a colleague, buried under grain delivered by a dump truck.

The first officers on the scene began administering CPR on the unconscious victim. He was brought to hospital in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu where he was later pronounced dead, said SQ spokeswoman Audrey-Anne Bilodeau.

Quebec's workplace safety watchdog, CNESST, is investigating, but the police say the death is not criminal.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.

One man died Sunday afternoon after being buried by grain at a farm in Marieville, Quebec, just north of St. Jean sur Richelieu.

Emergency crews rushed to the farm around 4:45 p.m. Sunday to help the man, a farm worker in his sixties, who was buried in grain being offloaded by a truck.

Sureté du Quebec officers and paramedics uncovered the man and performed CPR until he arrived at hospital, where his death was pronounced a short time later.

The CNESST is going to investigate the death to determine what happened and see how similar incidents can be prevented in the future.
