28/01/2015: US man rescued after spending 20 hours trapped in grain bin

Rescuers were able to free a Clayton County, US man trapped in a grain bin for more nearly 20 hours over the weekend, KCRG reports.


The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office says 33-year-old Rod Sylvester became trapped on Saturday. He was buried up to his neck and only had one arm free.

The Littleport Fire Department responded to the bin, on a farm on Elm Road south of Littleport, and was able to free him on Sunday.

Chief Deputy Mike Aschinger said he was very fortunate.

“Sylvester is a lucky man,” Aschinger said Monday.

After being rescued, Sylvester was taken to a hospital in Manchester, where he was treated and released.
