The Minneapolis Fire Department rescued a man who fell 20-30 feet inside a grain elevator Monday morning.
Officials said the man was trapped in a hole, but was conscious and only reported having a minor ankle injury.
Crews performed a "technical rescue," and Bryan Tyner of the Minneapolis Fire Department told GoMN the man climbed out of the hole he fell into after officials lowered a ladder down to him.
Tyner said the gran elevator is vacant and normally secured, noting the man who fell was likely an urban explorer.
Tyner told GoMN they probably respond to three to five calls per year for the city's abandoned grain elevators.
