Iowan rescued from corn bin
An Iowa worker was rescued after being stuck in corn kernels up to his chest inside a grain bin.
Officials say Curt Gitch, of Fredericksburg, was taken to a hospital as a precaution after he was freed from the bin at Figanbaum Trucking and Grain in Tripoli.
Gitch was cleaning the bin Tuesday morning (July 24) when he fell into the corn. He used his cellphone to call for help.
Bill Figanbaum says he and other workers rushed to shut down an auger that was moving the corn and then called 911 for help.
A hole was drilled into the bin so Gitch could be pulled out.
