The eastern Colorado warehouse worker was killed last week when a 20 ft mound of pinto beans collapsed on top of him. Details of exactly how he ended up under the pile are still being investigated, but the mound likely weight several tons. Co-workers, emergency responders and even volunteers spent an hour digging through the pile in attempts to rescue Segura, but he was dead when his body was uncovered.
Segura had worked for the Kelley Bean Company for 13 years.
