by

A Saskatchewan man has died following a late night work incident. Warman RCMP responded to a report of a 41-year-old man trapped inside a grain mixer in the RM of Corman Park, Sask.

The incident took place around 11:40pm, and both Medavie ambulance and the Osler fire department responded to the scene. STARS air ambulance was also called in to assist.

According to RCMP, the large grain mixer was cut open by the fire department and the man was extracted from the mixer. His injuries were severe, and although attempts to revive him were made, they were unsuccessful and the man died from his injuries at the scene. A GoFundMe page has revealed the man who died as Brendan Unger, of the Hague area. He leaves behind his wife, and four young children.

A GoFundMe page along with a meal train page has been set up to help the Unger family during this difficult time.

Due to the incident taking place at a job site, the federal Occupation Health and Safety Labour Affairs officer will be attending the area in which the death took place. Warman RCMP continue to investigate.
