Posted: Updated:

After being partially buried for four hours, an All-Points Cooperative Employee was rescued from a Gothenburg grain bin.

Rick Frickenstein was buried past his waist in the bin and was unable to move.

The co-op's manager, Ed Foster, was notified of the incident around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. Gothenburg Fire and Rescue responded to Foster's emergency call and by 1:30 p.m. Frickenstein was able to crawl out a trap door.

Frickenstein was taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure and was back at work later Wednesday afternoon.

The incident is being investigated.
