ambulanceWATERFORD — A man has been rescued after falling in a soybean bin in rural north Mississippi.

Authorities say 57-year-old Larry Mitchell was brought out of the bin late yesterday after nearly five hours of work by the Waterford Fire Department and the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department to free him.

Crews cut away parts of the bin to lower the grain level.

Mitchell is being treated at the Regional Medical Center in Memphis.

Waterford is located on Mississippi Highway 7 in Marshall County between Holly Springs and Oxford.
