Bellefontaine, MS (November 20, 2021) – Farmers worked together to load grain onto trucks after first responders were called to recover a body from a grain bin on Friday, November 19th in northwest Webster County.
The Webster County Fire Coordinator said emergency crews responded to reports of a worker trapped in a grain bin.
The accident took place at about 8:00 p.m. just outside of Bellefontaine off Highway 404.
A body was recovered at about 10:15 p.m. The County coroner confirmed the victim’s identity as 55-year-old Stanley Rodgers, a resident of Spring Hill.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Stanley Rodgers, at this time.
Workplace Injuries in Mississippi
In 2014, 71 people were killed in work-related accidents in Mississippi. Thirty of those accidents were transportation-related, four were due to explosions or fires, eleven were caused by falls, nine were from exposure to toxic or dangerous substances, nine involved machinery or equipment, and the remaining eight were associated with violence or malicious injuries inflicted by a coworker.
When a workplace injury, however it happens, results in a fatality, the surviving family members of the deceased might be entitled to workers’ compensation death benefits. According to Mississippi workers’ compensation law, death benefits are subjected to numerous deadlines and restrictions, making them difficult to understand without the legal guidance of an experienced Mississippi personal injury attorney.
