A Columbus man died during a cave-in in Talbot County.
According to Coroner Clinton Crosby, 53-year-old Paul Barnes was killed instantly when large boulders of chalk fell on top of him at the Witched Stephen Plants a mining facility on Old Mauk Road along Georgia Highway 96.
Crosby says Barnes was trapped about 15 feet down into the pit.
The call came in around 10:40 a.m. Friday morning, Dec. 13. Crosby says the victim was working on a bank when the incident happened. About 50 workers from Columbus EMS and Fire were both on the scene trying to rescue Barnes.

The mining area is owned by Brown Brothers Sand Co.

Barnes' body has been sent to Atlanta for further autopsy.
