A man from Colorado was killed after a 20-foot pile of pinto beans fell on him at a warehouse facility where he worked.

According to confirmed reports, 56-year-old Raymond Segura Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene after rescue workers failed to reach him alive.

The local sheriff Dave Martin told reporters that emergency rescue workers were sent to the site the morning of the incident after someone called 911 and said that a worker was trapped in a pile of loose pinto beans.
