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

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

from the Silo. He was not injured in the fall. No firefighters were injured in
