Worker rescued from grain bin

Quick action by co-workers probably saved the life of a man in a grain bin at a Morristown business. Rescue crews were called Thursday night to Bunge Grain near the Shelby County town for a worker who was trapped up to his chest in grain. Workers transferring grain to rail cars quickly shut down equipment to stop the flow of grain when they noticed the man being trapped. Firefighters needed about two hours to free the worker, who was able to walk from the scene to medical workers.
