Man Rescued from Silo in the Town of Calumet


A 27 year old man was rescued from a silo after he fell in on a farm in the Town of Calumet Monday evening. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department along with Town of Calumet Fire Department were called at 6:17 pm to S&S Dairy at N10380 Schoenborn Road in the Town of Calumet for a report of a man who had fallen around 24 feet into a 74-foot high silo that contained corn silage. Authorities say the man, identified as Joshua Sabel, climbed into the silo to close a door and as he was climbing across the silo unloader, one of the three cables holding up the unloader broke. Sabel was able to grab onto a cable and pull himself onto a ledge in the silo where he called for help. The City of Fond du Lac Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team was able to successfully remove Sabel from the Silo. He was not injured in the fall. No firefighters were injured in the rescue. Mount Calvary Ambulance and Town of Calumet First Responders also assisted at the scene.
