LEWISTON, Minn. (AP) — Crews in southeastern Minnesota are trying to rescue an 80-year-old man trapped in a corn bin.
Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says rescuers were called to a farm near Lewiston after 11 a.m. Thursday.
Brand tells KAGE-AM a hole was cut in the side of the bin so loose corn could be taken out with an auger. The man is being held by a rope so he won't sink into the corn.
The sheriff says the man has remained conscious.
The rescue was still underway as of 2 p.m.
A Mayo One helicopter is at the scene.
