Salem, NY - Two men working on a farm died after falling into a tank of liquid manure. One accidently fell backwards into the tank after being overcome by the fumes. His partner tried a rescue attempt, but was also overcome and fell into the tank. A third man tried to pull out the other two and fell in, but was rescued and is in critical condition. The sheriff's department investigating described the tank as "a home-made job capable of containing a 12 foot deep load of manure."
