Workers Rescued from Silo at Cargill Malt in Sheboygan


Three employees at the Cargill Malt plant in Sheboygan had to be rescued from a malt silo Tuesday morning. Sheboygan firefighters responded to the scene just before 10:30 am for a report of a man trapped up to his neck inside a silo at Cargill Malt. Firefighters discovered there were three workers inside of the silo. The first two workers were rescued within an hour – with assistance from the Sheboygan County Technical Rescue Team, Cargill employees and a vacuum truck from the City of Sheboygan Public Works Department. Those workers were checked at the scene and released. It took longer to rescue the third worker, who was taken to the hospital for treatment. His injuries are not expected to be life-threatening. Authorities say over 30 emergency responders were on scene for up to four hours during the rescue efforts.
