TABOR — A man was successfully rescued after getting stuck in a grain bin Tuesday.

Yankton deputy fire chief Larry Nickles told the Press & Dakotan that crews were summoned to a grain silo on 427th St. north of Tabor Tuesday afternoon for a report of a man trapped in a grain elevator.

“They were able to use a specialized grain tube that the fire departments all have in the county and they were able to dig the victim out,” Nickles said. “From what I was told, the victim was never completely submerged in the grain. He was partially submerged and extricated with no life-threatening injuries.”

Fire departments from Lesterville, Tabor and Yankton all responded to the incident. Tabor EMS also responded.
