LOUISVILLE, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 76-year-old man has been rescued from a grain bin in eastern Nebraska after being trapped in corn up to his chest.

Relatives told Omaha television station KMTV that Marvin Manske was unloading corn from a bin in rural Louisville (LOO’-iss-vihl) when he became trapped around 4:30 p.m. Monday. Family members tried for more than an hour to free him, but they finally called for help.

Louisville Fire Chief Jason McClun says rescue workers provided oxygen to help Manske remain conscious, and special equipment was taken to the site.

Manske was pulled from the bin just after 8:30 p.m. He was flown to an Omaha hospital as a precaution.
