The family of a worker who died in a fall at a grain facility in Buffalo Lake, Minn., has filed a wrongful death lawsuit. Andrew Burnett, 28, of New Ulm, died Oct. 27, 2012, when he fell about 60 feet while working at the South Central Grain and Energy facility. Burnett’s family says he was wearing a body safety harness attached to a lanyard when he fell and that the lanyard and its parts were defective. Burnett was working outside on an auger motor at the time of the accident.
