ROCHESTER, Minn. - First responders from the Lewiston Fire Department have rescued an 80-year-old man who was trapped in a grain bin south of Lewiston Thursday.
Officials say the man appeared to be uninjured but he was taken to the hospital as a precaution. The man was rescued from the grain bin about 2 p.m. Thursday.
The man was stuck in the bin for more than three hours.
