RESCUED AFTER A ONE HOUR STRUGGLE IN GRAIN SILO
Man struggles at silo for an hour before rescue.
Almost three dozen rescue workers fought quicksand-like grain sorghum for an agonizing hour in a silo at the Port of Harlingen to save a worker submerged up to his neck.
The worker was checking a vent from inside the silo when he fell through a pocket of grain.
The grain if not well compressed, leaves pockets of soft spots.
