Man hospitalized after being rescued from grain bin

JUNIATA, Neb. (AP) – Authorities say a man was hospitalized after being freed from a grain bin in south-central Nebraska’s Adams County.

Rescue workers were sent Tuesday evening to the site about 3.5 miles (5.6 kilometers) west of Juniata. The workers cut a hole in the side of the bin, and it took more than an hour for them to get the man out and one his way to a Hastings hospital.

He’s been identified as Gaylon Hermann.
