      A second auger death this week has come to light in Mitchell County.

      The Mitchell County Sheriff's Office responded to a call Tuesday on Flint Road off of Highway 37 in Camilla for an auger accident.

      Investigator Kevin Spellers confirms that 62-year-old Jackie McCook was in a grain silo 'loading a semi truck with seed when the auger got him.'

      This death is ruled accidental. An autopsy is being performed to determine if medical problems were a factor.

      Joshua Fulghum died Thursday at Southwest Georgia Ethanol after an accident involving an auger at a grain silo.
