Man trapped for hour in grain bin in Fairmount

FAIRMOUNT, N.D. - A man has been taken a hospital after being trapped in a grain bin in Fairmount.

The Richland County sheriff's office says 20-year-old Matt Restad was shoveling around a door in the grain bin when he became stuck and sunk up to his chest about 9 a.m. Friday. Rescuers got him out about an hour later.

Restad was taken to a Breckenridge, Minn., hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A spokeswoman said the hospital doesn't release patient conditions.
