Ashburn-- Twenty-eight-year old Jonathan Escobar, of Tifton, died Saturday at bio-plus incorporated in Ashburn.

Escobar was trying to unclog a bin when the pile of hulls he was standing on gave way. He fell into the 12 foot heap of ground hulls and died of asphyxiation.

The vice president of bio-plus says the death could have been prevented if Escobar had worn a safety harness as required by OSHA.

Funeral services for Escobar were held Wednesday at our divine saviour catholic church. He will be buried in Mexico City, Mexico.
