SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) - Crews have rescued three workers from a malt silo in Sheboygan.

Firefighters were called to the Cargill plant Tuesday morning when a worker fell into a silo and was trapped up to his neck.

When first responders arrived, they found that two more workers had become trapped in the silo while trying to rescue the first man.

The two workers who entered the silo to rescue the worker who fell were both extricated within an hour of firefighters arriving. Both were treated at the scene and released.

The Sheboygan Press reports the other man was freed around 2:30 p.m. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
