I am so glad that he is safe.
I read the article tat work this morning when his rescue was in progress, and have been wondering all night. He is very lucky his brother was there with him.

Thank God he is Ok

But to me it's like telling a life guard not to drown. Farmers know the danger of grain bins yet we keep hearing these stories.

thank god he is all right. my son wasn't lucky enough when his boss fell in the bin. my son called 911, help to dig him out and unfortunely, it was to late. I don't understand why people won't take that extra two seconds to be safe. It happened to my sons boss almost a year ago now, and my son still is having problems with it. Unfortunely, he doesn't think it is still giving him problems. So, please think before you climb up there, If not for yourself, than for others!

Every farmer in the US ought to know about the dangers of entering grain bins by now. This man's situation was also more dangerous because of his obesity. They should charge him for the rescuer's expenses.
