NEW CASTLE, Ind. — A New Castle woman died Friday in a farming accident at a Henry County farm.

Indiana State Police say that James and Barbara Smith were loading corn from a grain bin on their farm at 4808 W. State Road 234.

At around 2 p.m. on Friday, James called 911 saying he couldn’t find his wife and thought she may be trapped inside the grain bin.

Police say they searched for two hours before they found Barbara inside the grain bin, which had eight to ten feet of corn inside.
