Farmer And 16 Cows Found Dead, Cause Of Death Finally Discovered


It was alleged that when other laborers showed up to start removing manure from the tank, Biadasz was already dead.

Portage County Coroner Scott Rifleman told WAOW, “The family is devastated, absolutely devastated.”

Rifleman told WSAW that the incidence is even more unexpected because gas poisoning deaths usually happen in closed spaces. The coroner stated that the gasses could not escape due to air pressure.

The coroner continued by saying that an inquiry is being conducted to ascertain the precise reason of Biadasz’s demise. Before the tragic event, Rifleman claimed that Biadasz had safely emptied the same tank hundreds of times.

In remembrance of Michael, the Biadasz family parked a row of tractors and other equipment along the road that goes near the farm. A blue tractor, multiple red trucks, and Michael’s black pickup truck are among the parked cars.

One Facebook user commented on the article, saying, “As if there isn’t already enough danger in the lives of farmers, this family had to suffer this freak accident.” “So sad.”

Many people are advocating for stricter rules to be imposed on manure storage tanks in the wake of the unfortunate disaster in order to avoid another one of this kind happening in the future. The National Agriculture Safety Database, according to All That’s News, states that areas used for livestock storage ought to have adequate ventilation and that adjacent warning signs need to be erected.

“In addition to adhering to proper construction and maintenance procedures for liquid manure storage facilities, owners should be encouraged to follow a few precautionary measures to protect both workers and livestock from harmful manure gases,” according to the NASD.

According to WASW, a Virginia family met a similar tragic end in 2007 when a pipe obstruction resulted in a deadly methane gas buildup, killing five of the family members.
