Grain bin rescue near Newark

Posted by wlpo on July 17, 2014

Working in a grain bin can be a dangerous job.

A man was trapped in a grain bin Wednesday afternoon east of Newark after his leg got stuck in an auger. By time deputies and paramedics arrived at the Grainco FS plant in Kendall County, the man was conscious. He was flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

His name hasn’t been released.
