GRANT COUNTY, Wisc. — The Grant County Sheriff’s Office has completed its investigation into the death of a 9-year-old boy at a farm in Liberty Township.

Authorities were first called to the scene in the 2500 block of Dry Hollow Road at 11:18 a.m. on July 10 for a person trapped in a grain bin.

Two technical rescue teams helped look for the child, and found him at 12:35 p.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An initial investigation determined he was helping family members fix the bin’s auger. However, in an updated release sent Wednesday afternoon, the sheriff’s office said the equipment was not stuck or inoperable and instead said the 9-year-old climbed the ladder for unknown reasons and fell in. Authorities ruled child’s death an accident.
