(SILVER LAKE) - An Indiana farmer was injured after being trapped in a grain bin.

Officials say the crew at Hoffman Farms spent the day moving corn from a bin into a truck. The auger, which moves the grain, got clogged.

When the crew removed the plug at the bottom of the bin, the corn funneled down and sucked in Carlos Torres. Three men then created a human wall around him to keep him from going under the grain.
