TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Emergency crews have rescued a man who became trapped inside a concrete mixer at Kansas Sand and Concrete on Tyler Street.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/NU1tUU) reports the worker was cleaning a stationary concrete mixer shortly before noon Saturday when he slipped and fell into it. Emergency responders were able to get him out of the mixer within half an hour.
