fire rescueHENDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (12/14/17) — A man stuck 80 feet in the air in a grain elevator was rescued by Henderson emergency responders today.

Rescue workers say the man was in a one-man elevator lift, when it got off track and became stuck between floor levels, causing him to be unable to get out.

The incident happened at ADM Grain on Old Geneva Road outside of Henderson in Smith Mills around 1 p.m. 

Smith Mills Fire Department, Henderson City/County Rescue, and Henderson City Fire responded to assist.

“Henderson Fire Department was able to extend their ladder truck up to the man,” said Smith Mills Fire Chief Mike Coghill. “Once they reached him, they were able to secure the the elevator and keep it from moving or falling. Once it was secure, they put safety devices on the man to secure him and remove him.”

Emergency personnel checked the man's condition, reporting he was OK.

ADM did not wish to comment on the incident.
