Man rescued from grain silo (Photo) - 05/21/24

At approximately 1:30 pm on May 21st, Marion County Fire District #1 responded to reports of a male stuck in a grain silo buried up to his chest.  Upon arrival, responders found a middle-aged male patient conscious and alert in a silo unable to extricate himself.  Rescue 4 and Ladder 4 from Salem Fire Department were requested to assist in the confined space and possible rope rescue. After approx. 3 hours of slow and deliberate maneuvers to create a safe exit from the silo, the patient was extricated and transported to Salem Hospital for evaluation.
