Man rescued from central South Dakota grain bin (Audio)

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – A man is recovering after getting trapped in a grain bin near Pierre. The man became trapped in the east of Pierre on Friday afternoon.

Pierre Fire Chief Ian Paul says firefighters arrived to find local residents already had a rope around the man so he wouldn’t sink any further.

Paul says firefighters built a wall around the man, scooped out the grain inside the wall, and cut holes in the bin to let grain escape…

The man suffered non-life threatening injuries. His name was not released.
