Worker falls in grain silo
An Iowa grain worker was injured Wednesday after falling 60 feet to the bottom of a grain silo.
The worker was reportedly operating a grain elevator when he fell into an empty bin. He sustained injuries after hitting the concrete floor and was left unassisted for two hours until other workers found him. After being lifted out of the silo, he was taken to a nearby Waterloo hospital for treatment.
A workplace accident can lead to severe injuries that leave a worker unable to return to the job for weeks, months, or even years. If you or someone you know has been injured on the job, it is important to ensure that you receive the compensation you need to recover from your injuries and accident related costs.
