A man died Tuesday after getting stuck in a manure tank on the Sievers family farm in Stockton, Iowa.
New Liberty Fire Chief Chad Petersen confirmed on Wednesday that firefighters responded to the call on Tuesday shortly before 10 a.m.
Petersen said the man was working in the tank when he got stuck.
The New Liberty Fire Department, which is staffed by volunteers, was on the scene for most of the day. Petersen said he called for reinforcements from other nearby volunteer fire departments, and responders were able to retrieve the man’s body from the tank late Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.
The Sievers Family Farm is a livestock farm and home to AgriReNew, a renewable energy company that recycles manure to generate electricity.
The name of the victim was not disclosed.
