GRABILL — Firefighters rescued two brothers who became stuck while working inside a grain bin at their family's northeastern Indiana farm.
Fort Wayne assistant fire chief Ron Privett says a 17-year-old was buried up to his neck Thursday evening and crews needed several hours to free him. His 21-year-old brother was buried to his knees and was quickly freed.
Neighbor Howard Dager tells WANE-TV that the two brothers had been working with their father all day hauling grain.
Both brothers were able to climb down a ladder from the grain bin after they were rescued at the farm about 15 miles northeast of Fort Wayne.
Fire officials say the brothers were trying to free up some of the grain in the bin that was about three-quarters full.
