Man, I love my beans too.

Man buried under 20 feet of Pinto beans

Raymond Segura Jr. was pronounced dead at the Brush, Colorado, facility of the Kelley Bean Company after efforts to reach him alive were unsuccessful, Morgan County Undersheriff Dave Martin said.
"We moved several tons of beans to get to him," Martin said.
Martin said emergency personnel were summoned to the site at 11:30 a.m. on reports of a worker trapped in a pile of loose pinto beans. Martin said dozens of rescue workers and even four inmates from the county jail spent an hour digging through a 20-foot high mound of the legumes to get to the trapped worker, but he was dead when crews reached him.
Segura was a longtime resident of the area and had worked at the warehouse for between 12 and 15 years, Martin said.
The cause of the accident, how the victim became trapped and the exact cause of death are under investigation, he added.

I don't think I've ever actually killed anybody with beans, but I've wounded a few pretty good.

This is still fairly common too, esp with silos. I have to take confined space training and it's amazing the ways people find to kill themselves.
