(WIBW) - A man is recovering from injuries suffered when he became trapped in a grain bin for several hours Wednesday.

Emergency crews were called just after 12:30 pm to Valley View Milling, about eight miles north of Seneca.

The Nemaha County Sheriff's Office says a crew was working inside a bin when one man somehow became trapped. It took rescue crews more than two and a half hours to get him out.

The victim was flown to Stormont-Vail HealthCare in Topeka for treatment. Authorities say he was conscious and in stable condition when he left the scene.
