Rescue crews learned last Wednesday evening about a grain bin entrapment that happened in Stonington, IL, reports WAND 17.

Two male victims were trapped in a bin, with one of them waist-deep in grain and the other shin-deep. Both were alert and trying to free themselves.

Authorities lowered rescue ropes into the bin and men were able to secure lifelines to themselves to prevent further sinking. The victims then strapped themselves into the harnesses and were pulled to safety. No injuries were reported.
