The Minneapolis Fire Department rescued a man who fell 20-30 feet inside a grain elevator Monday morning.

The fire department responded to the call this morning near the University of Minnesota.

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 the man climbed out of the hole after officials lowered a ladder down to him.

The grain elevator is vacant and normally secured, noting the man who fell was likely an Urban Explorer.

Grain elevators have been popular with Urban Explorers, but they can be dangerous. People have actually lost their lives exploring them over the years.
