Storm Lake man seriously hurt in grain bin roof collapse


A Storm Lake construction worker has been seriously injured in a grain bin accident in central Iowa.

23-year-old Segoviano Rodriguez was pinned under debris around six o'clock Tuesday evening when the roof of a grain bin he was helping build in Slater, Iowa collapsed.

A crane was used to lift the roof, allowing medics to remove Rodriguez.

Story County officials say Rodriguez was flown to Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines with possible head and neck injuries.

He was listed in serious condition.
