Authorities in central Iowa say a Jasper County man has died after being trapped in a grain bin.

Des Moines television station KCCI reports that the Jasper County Sheriff's Office and other first responders were alerted to a man trapped in the bin near Kellogg just after 8 a.m. Thursday.

First responders found 78-year-old Bill Hotger, of rural Kellogg, inside the bin. Once Hotger was freed, he was flown by helicopter to a Des Moines hospital, where he died.

An autopsy has been ordered.
