One Farmer Saves Another

A South Dakota farmer rescued a Minnesota farmer from a grain bin earlier this
month, saving his life, the Pioneer Press reported.

David O'Hara, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, kept corn away Everett Vande
Roovt's head until rescue workers arrived at Voort's farm near Beaver
Creek.

Roovt, 74, climbed into a grain bin to fix a problem, but was unable to climb
out. Corn swirled up to his neck, trapping him in the grain bin, the Pioneer
Press said.

O'Hara, who had an appointment with Roovt, was waiting in his kitchen with
his wife. Both went searching for Roovt after he didn't show up to the
appointment, the Pioneer Press said.

Roovt said he remembers little about the rescue, but credits O'Hara with
saving his life, KTTC said.
