Boy Rescued from Grain Wagon

(Pulaski County, IN) – First responders in Pulaski County rescued a boy from a grain-filled farm wagon.


On Tuesday two Pulaski County Sheriff’s deputies were first on the scene following a call for a nine-year-old boy trapped in a grain wagon on a farm west of Winamac.


Fortunately, one of the officers, Alec Berger, had previous training in grain bin rescue. He and his partner, Aaron Zimmerman, leapt into action. According to the Sheriff’s Department facebook page, Berger used metal sheets wedged into the grain to stabilize the boy.


Madaryville firefighters soon arrived and used a grain cage called the Great Wall of Rescue to remove the settled corn from around the boy and extricate him.


According to the Medaryville/White Post Volunteer Fire Department, “We purchased the Great Wall of Rescue a few years back, hoping we would never have to use it,” the post said. “Which now, we are extremely glad we did. This tool helped us to rescue the young boy safely. Everyone at the scene worked so well together.”


Pulaski County EMS checked the boy on-scene. No injuries were reported.
