This horrible tragedy was totally avoidable. The 3 boys had no experience working in farming, no training on grain bin hazards and no safety equipment(workers with harness and lanyard). Proper safety procedures of having an observer ready to effect a rescue if needed was not performed. One of the boys was a minor who should not have been permitted to do dangerous work of any type. The owners and operators of that grain bin should be indicted and convicted of negligent homicide.
