A rural Pelican Rapids man became trapped in a grain bin in rural Pelican Rapids on Tuesday afternoon.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office says that around 1pm, the man was clearing out a clog in the mixer and did not realize there was still feed in the mixer. When he cleared the clog, the sensor tripped dumping feed on him. He was covered for a short period of time until enough feed drained uncovering his head but trapping him.

The man, whose name has not been released, was eventually freed with help from the Pelican Rapids and Rothsay Fire Departments, and Ringdahl Ambulance. The man suffered no injuries, and no medical attention was needed.
