BNSF contractor dies after falling into grain car

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kansas City, Kansas, officials say a contractor for BNSF Railway died after falling into a train car full of grain.

Fire department officials say 48-year-old James Breedlove died in the accident Monday at railroad yards in Kansas City, Kansas. Authorities did not release his hometown.

Fire department deputy chief Craig Duke says Breedlove fell into the train car while grain was being transferred from the car to a semitrailer.

KCTV5 reports (http://bit.ly/1rdsB4e ) that when firefighters arrived, rail crews were trying to remove the grain from the train car. They found Breedlove's body near the bottom of the car.

No other injuries were reported.
