The bricks were pretty loose from the poor quality mortar. One was apparently "tunneling" through the side of the silo, the other exploring someplace else in the barn, when the worst happened. The whole thing did not come down, but it was fatal anyway.

    Be careful out there.
    It's unfortunately a regular occurance with kids exploring. For adults it's plain stupidity in my opinion as limited as it is.

    Now that is a SLOOOOOOOOOOW job! Looks like one could take out retirement on that one job.

    They at least could have a guy with a torch to cut the rebar.
