06/14/2024- 1041 hours: Crews alerted for a land rescue- person in a grain bin- at 14781 Williamsport Pike, Antrim Township. Additional resources were requested enroute, including confined space teams and grain bin rescue equipment from Hagerstown, Franklin, Washington and Frederick Counties in Maryland, support units and aviation. Upon arrival, responders confirmed one worker chest high in the corn approximately twenty feet below the access point and rigged ropes, harnesses, monitored the space, gathered equipment and contacted other farm-related resources while making entry. Using a tractor mounted grain vacuum, the conscious victim was freed at approximately 1500 hours and flown by LifeNet 8-1 to York Hospital.

Included are several images from other sources to highlight the number of agencies and coordination required for such a complex operation. The teamwork, willingness to adapt and flex through multiple options throughout the 4.5 hour rescue evolution speaks volumes of the professionalism of our emergency services providers, law enforcement, subject matter experts and community. Last unit returned to service at 1732 hours.
