WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — Authorities have released the name of a man who died in a north Waterloo grain bin accident.

He’s been identified as 68-year-old Rand Renner, who lived in Waverly.

Rescue crews were sent to the East Central Iowa Co-Op elevator about 11:30 a.m. Monday on a report of a worker who was trapped in soybeans. Firefighters cut holes in the bin, and co-op employees used a vacuum to drain the bin as emergency crews entered to reach Renner.
