A 57-year-old woman from Mankota, Sask., is dead after becoming trapped in a grain car.

According to the RCMP, the woman was working on her farm southwest of Mankota, about 275 kilometres southwest of Regina, when it happened Wednesday morning.

Emergency crews were alerted at 11:12 a.m. CST.

She was removed from the grain car and taken to Mankota, where a STARS air ambulance helicopter was supposed to take her to hospital.

However, she died before that could happen.

Police haven't released her name.
